Customers in Wanaka and Queenstown may notice a helicopter operating in the following areas between Monday 17 – Wednesday 19 January, weather permitting:
- Wanaka: Mount Iron, Hikuwai, Hidden Hills and the DOC campground
- Queenstown: Queenstown Hills, Arthurs Point and along the Queenstown to Glenorchy Road
The helicopter will fly at an altitude of 1000 feet in urban areas and 500 feet in rural areas to minimise any disturbance.
The information captured by the camera will be used to help assess the condition of overhead power lines and poles to ensure that the electricity network remains safe and reliable.
