26 February 2014

Transpower would like to advise that the latest addition to the National Grid – the North Auckland and Northland project – will be put into full commercial operation from 10am on Wednesday 26 February 2014.

The North Auckland and Northland project consists of a new 220 kV cable running 37km across Auckland, starting at Pakuranga and terminating at Albany, two new substations at Wairau Road and Hobson Street, and associated upgrade works. This will provide greater reliability of power supply to the Auckland and Northland regions.
