THE construction of a new substation got underway recently in a bid to boost electricity capacity in Kokstad. Greater Kokstad Municipal spokesperson Nthabeleng Matshoba said substations in Kokstad were unable to shoulder the demand of electricity and there was a need for a new one. “We are building the substation to avoid electricity cuts in Kokstad and surrounding areas. “A new site has been allocated next to Kokstad College,” she said. The project is expected to be completed before the end of the year.
