Drakenstein electricity repair work on schedule
7 February 2018
Most repair work is on schedule and electricity in affected Drakenstein areas is expected to be restored by approximately 18:00 on Wednesday, 7 February 2018. This follows a short circuit and subsequent fire at the Parys electricity substation in Paarl on Monday, 5 February 2018.
The areas include the Paarl Central Business District (“Middedorp”), Denneburg, Klein Parys, Lustigan Road Area, parts of Boschenmeer, and KWV along Main Road to Gimnasium High School.
Some repair work is taking longer due to fire damage to various cables that are connected to a damaged switchboard. Specific electrical equipment had to be ordered.
Drakenstein Municipality wishes to thank its residents and businesses for their patience and cooperation.
