Outages: Hilton, Sweetwaters

2013-05-24 00:00

HILTON and Sweetwaters residents, be warned.

The Msunduzi Municipality will be switching off the electricity supply for eight hours from 8 am next Tuesday.

Municipal spokesperson Brian Zuma said the planned outage was to complete the installation of one of the power lines in the multi-million rand Hilton electricity upgrade.

“This will allow us to say proudly that we have a stable line to Hilton that can handle the load this winter and beyond,” said Zuma.

Work would continue on finishing the second line, which is 70% completed and is expected to be commissioned by June 22, he added.

In Durban yesterday, a cable fault left large areas without power.

The fault on the 132kV cable termination from Klaarwater Major affected the Westmead, Marian Ridge, Hillcrest and Waterfall substations.

The power to those areas was switched off so emergency teams could work on the fault.
