NZUAG office out of contact for over two days
Contractors cutting a Telecom cable has put the NZUAG office out of contact for over two days.
NZUAG Executive Officer, Fiona Knight, expressed frustration that a careless contractor from a reputable company, undertaking a road maintenance job for the local authority, managed to cut a Telecom cable despite its location being fully marked out by Telecom. "We have just held a workshop to decided what needs addressing to avoid such needless damage, and both these organisations gave their commitment to implement appropriate actions. What an irony it is" she said.
