Major roadworks in progress

From time to time a temporary road closure may be required to allow for physical road works and local events. There may be some disruption to traffic as speed is reduced while going through or next to a work site. Stop/go traffic flow will be in place where required. All work is weather dependent and time-frames may extend due to this.

This work is weather dependent.

UFB installation

Chorus is working in Upper Hutt to rollout Ultrafast Broadband and the Rural Broadband Initiative. Fibre can deliver large amounts of data further and faster than the copper cables that traditionally deliver telecommunications services.

At least three weeks before UFB work starts in your street, residents will receive a leaflet and a letter letting you know of work coming up and the impact on your area.

When Chorus has finished laying fibre in your street you need to contact a telecommunications service provider to order a UFB-based service. They place an order with Chorus who will then organise a suitable time to come to your home and connect you to the new fibre network.

You should talk to your current service provider first. If they have not launched their UFB-based products use the link in the Resource & Links section to find out where you can get UFB based services from.

Chorus has a new Rollout and Service Availability Map which shows you the first three years UFB rollout and five years of RBI, including rural schools. This means you can check on the progress of their planned network upgrades, including UFB and RBI, and find out what services are available to you. 

For more information including ‘where you can get UFB based services’ from and  ‘rollout and service availability map’ visit the Chorus website using the link below.

Forward Works Programme

If road resurfacing works are planned for your street, we’ll let you know closer to the time. You will receive a preliminary notice in your letterbox at least 48 hours beforehand advising you of the dates and times.

There may be changes to the programme with sites added or deferred to a later year to accommodate necessary scheduling.
