Service Lane 2, Taupo CBD
Network Upgrade Project 

Project overview 

As part of Unison's commitment to provide a reliable electricity supply to its customers, during July, Unison Contracting will be upgrading its power distribution assets in Service Lane 2 – between Paora Hapi and Tamamutu Streets – to improve the reliability of electricity for nearby businesses and residents.

Project details
Work will commence on Wednesday 1 July and is expected to be completed by Monday 27 July 2020. 


While this is an important investment and will provide benefits to the community, there may be some short-term disruption for vehicles travelling along Service Lane 2, with traffic reduced to one-lane from 1 – 27 July.

Traffic management will be in place and our staff on-site will be monitoring the work and looking out for anyone who is in the area, but please ensure you take care while the work is in progress or consider an alternative route if possible. 

To undertake the work safely, at times we will need to carry out scheduled power outages which will affect power supply. Unison is conscious that there are businesses operating in the area and plans to restrict any necessary scheduled outages to outside business hours.

Customers that are affected by a planned outage during the project will be notified by their retailers.
