Planned works and interruptions

We regularly carry out planned works and projects to repair and upgrade our systems.

As a result some disruption to service and traffic interruptions may occur. We try and keep these to a minimum and where possible provide advance notice in local newspapers, on this website and by direct mail.

We have not listed all our current planned works below; just the works that may impact customers from traffic or service interruptions.

The information is as up-to-date as possible but is subject to change at short notice. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

For more information call our Contact Centre on 1300 363 200 or see our contact us page for other contact details.
