Power outage to parts of Jeffreys Bay

THE electricity supply to sections of Jeffreys Bay that was scheduled for August 6 will now take place on Monday, August 13.

The power will be interrupted periodically at Aston Bay, Paradise Beach, Ocean View, Tokyo Sexwale and Pellsrus from 08:00 to 15:00 on the day.

The interruption had to be postponed due to the heavy rains which left the terrain too wet to work, said Kouga Infrastructure and Engineering Portfolio Councillor Freddy Campher.

The work is necessary to separate the electricity supply to the affected areas and the Marina Martinique and will help to ensure fewer outages.

“The power to Aston Bay, Paradise Beach, Ocean View, Tokyo and Pellsrus will be switched off from time to time between 08:00 to 15:00 while the power supply to the Marina will be affected from 08:00 to 20:00,” he said.

Households are advised to treat all electrical outlet points as live during this time.
