Municipality attends to R24 power outages
Rustenburg – The Rustenburg Local Municipality (RLM) advises residents receiving electrical supply from the network along the R24 (Krugersdorp Road) that the reported frequent power supply cuts is being attended to.
The municipality’s electrical unit continues to work on ensuring the stabilisation of electricity supply to all the affected residents.
To date, the electrical unit has cut trees, which are suspected to have been interfering with the power lines and also started replacing the insulators.
Given the recurrence of the power outages on the network, residents have been moved to an alternate supply line from a different substation while more work is being carried out to resolve the problem. On 7 July, the electrical unit looked for and removed all the illegal connections to the network that they could find.
