Power: Hilton ‘back to square one’

2013-01-12 00:00

A TRANSFORMER that exploded in Hilton yesterday caused more delays in the restoration of power in some parts of the town, which has had numerous long periods without power since Sunday’s storm. The lights went out again in some areas of Hilton last night, after being on during the afternoon.

Msunduzi Municipality spokesperson Nqobile Madonda said they were working on the problem. “We are back to square one in Hilton.” Madonda said power in Scottsville and Sobantu had been restored and technicians were still working on other areas. She could not say when the job might be finished.
