Electricians will this afternoon (Thursday, 14 March 2019), switch on Bophelong, Bophelong Extensions 1 – 18, Stephano Park and Bonanne.

The municipality is pleading for patience and electricians are working around the clock to ensure power is restored in all affected areas.

Our electricians are still hard at work restoring power supply following an explosion at the Town Main Substation situated in Curie Boulevard in Vanderbijlpark on Tuesday, 12 March 2019.

The resulting fire at the station led to power outages in several areas in Vanderbijlpark including Stephanopark, Bonanne, Parts of NW7, the
Vanderbijlpark Water Tower, Bophelong Ext 1 to 18 and CW areas 1 to 6.
