Our crews were on site in Howick West after a car vs pole incident brought lines down there during the week. This incident caused an outage in the area, affecting around 30 customers.

Our crews were kept busy dealing with car vs pole incidents across our network during the week.

Vector was stood down by emergency services from a house fire in Mt Eden during the week, but our crews carried out power isolations to other fires, in Clover Park, Goodwood Heights, the CBD, Henderson, Mt Wellington, St Johns and Mt Roskill.


The house fire in Mt Roskill also saw our crews isolate gas supply to that address, at the request of emergency services.

Third party damage was responsible for call outs in Hamilton, St Heliers and Tauranga during the week. Our crews attended, and completed all necessary repairs.

Gas odours were investigated in Orewa, Tauranga, Paraparumu and Thorndon, with all necessary repairs completed by our crews.
