ELECTRICITY

Fires across the city kept Vector crews busy during the week. For safety, power was isolated to seven house/building fires in Mangere, Mt Albert, Glen Eden, Kelston, Takapuna and Browns Bay.

Car v pole incidents occurred in Takapuna, Warkworth, Papatoetoe, Otara and in Mt Wellington during the week. A Vector pole had to be replaced at the Mt Wellington incident before power could be restored. Cars hit transformers in Avondale and Albany during the week.
