Project Gotham

Powerco owns and operates the natural gas network in Wellington.

The growing number of gas customers in central Wellington has seen the gas network in the area reach capacity.

Powerco has begun a project called Project Gotham to renew parts of the gas network in the central city. The work will allow Powerco to continue to provide a safe and reliable gas supply to its customers.


This project will not only increase customer capacity allowing for growth, but provide a more reliable and secure gas network in central Wellington.

Work commencement: Sector 2

Project Gotham is being implemented in four stages. Work will begin in ‘sector 2’ (refer to map below) in January 2018 with the excavation of parts of the network to check and replace equipment.

The schedule of work has been rearranged for minimal impact to businesses and residents.

However, sections of the road will need to be closed at times.
