The Emalahleni Local Municipality has announced that a planned power outage is expected from Saturday, 15 January 2022at 08H00 until Sunday, 16 January 2022 at 10H00 for the installation and commissioning of the switchgear. The work to be carried out entails the decommissioning and dismantling of the vandalised and unsafe 11kV switchgear, which has been left in a dilapidated state as a result of theft and vandalism occurring on a regular basis at Dixon Substation and will be replaced with new equipment. This work needs to be carried out as an urgent matter due to the substation operating under non-compliant conditions, which poses a danger to municipal operators and the public. The following areas will be affected, Brentwood on Springbok Street, Tasbet Park Ext 1,12 & 17, Reyno Ridge Extensions 1,5,6,9,10,15,16 & 17, Reyno Ridge School in Gazelle Street, Witbank Ext 16, Khayalami Impala, Village green, Dixon Plots, Ridge View Security Estate and the Ridge Estate, Del Judor Ext 2 and surrounding area.
