Working near overhead lines
When working near power lines, it’s important to treat them as live at all times. Getting too close to a power line can cause serious injury and death. To stay safe, keep yourself and any equipment at least 4m away from overhead lines – electricity can jump to your equipment and you.
Over-height load permits
Transporting a high load? Apply for a permit to ensure safe travel routes and plans, and notify Chorus and UltraFast Fibre. Charges may apply for escorting loads over 5.5m high or planned outages for overhead lines.
Check NZTA website for overdimension load requirements.
