Traffic lights: failure not load shedding

2008-06-23 00:00

Traffic lights in Boshoff Street were out for most of the day yesterday due to a technical problem with one of the city’s mini-sub-stations.

After the traffic lights went off at around 9 am, readers contacted The Witness fearing that load shedding had kicked in again. One said a beggar was conducting traffic on one of the streets.

A Msunduzi Municipality spokeswoman said the power failure resulted from a technical problem at a sub-station, but did not specify what this was.

She said the electricity division was dealing with it and had envisaged that the problem would be sorted out before close of business yesterday.
