Power has now been switched off and we estimate the work will be completed and the power back on around 8:30pm this evening.
Orion will cut power to 64 customers in Allandale near Governors Bay later this afternoon to allow the safe removal of a truck that has gone off a road in the area.
The power will be switched off later this afternoon for an estimated four to six hours.
The power is being turned off while Orion isolates, earths and removes the lines that are above the truck. This will allow crane access for the safe removal of the vehicle.
Customers can check if their service is affected, or be updated by checking Orion website’s Power Outages section, or calling the Orion Contact Centre on 03 363 9898 or 0800 363 9898.
