The Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality would like to inform residents that there is a planned shutdown of the Ditchling substation on Sunday, July 2, 2017. The shutdown will lead to a cut of electricity distribution to almost the whole of Western Surburbs, parts of the Northern Areas and the CBD area.
Please see details below:
When: Sunday, 2 July 2017
Where: Ditchling 66kV substation
Time: 08H00 – 17H00
Reason: Emergency repairs at Ditchling substation on Kragga Kamma feeder.
A large part of Port Elizabeth will be affected.
Areas affected will include:
Algoa Park; Cradock Place; Young Park, Gelvan Park, Parkside, Springdale, Gelvandale, Helenvale, Malabar, section of Korsten, Neave Township, Marais Township, Sydenham, Sidwell, Adcockvale, Essexvale, Vikingvale, section of Kabega Park, Kragga Kamma, Sunridge Park, Fernglen, Framesby, Westering, Linton Grange, Morningside, Brymore, Vergelegen, Mangold Park, Walmer Downs, Charlo, Springfield, Greenshields Park, section of Overbaakens, section of Walmer.
Please note it is impossible to give exact street names as some areas (eg Kabega Park, Walmer, Central and others) are fed from 2 different substations. Therefore, we are unable to determine the exact boundary due to the proximity of the circuits and the network topology (how the network is arranged).
Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused. The repairs form part of the commitment that the City has made to residents, business and the tourism industry of being a well run City.
