Published: 18 Apr 2017 8:10am

Ergon Energy will interrupt power to several areas in the Whitsundays this week to make emergency repairs to its network.

An Ergon spokesman said the repairs are necessary and need to be done quickly to replace temporary repairs made immediately following Tropical Cyclone Debbie.

‘Unfortunately we need to do them sooner rather than later,” he said.

‘While the number of customers impacted will be small, our crews are aware this may inconvenience them and will work as quickly as possible to get the job done.”

The planned interruptions are:

Tuesday 18 April

  • in the Paluma Rd, Parkland Dr, Pringle Rd, Bellavista Dr and Mountainview Dr areas from 8.30am - 4.30pm
  • the Kelsey Creek SWER line 1.00pm – 4.30pm

Wednesday 19 April

  • Shute Harbour Rd near Plants Whitsunday from 8.30am - 2.30pm
  • Orchard Rd, Hibiscus Rd, Wattle Ridge area from 8:30am -12:00 noon

Thursday 20 April

  • Riordanvale Rd, Turner Rd, Sugarloaf Rd from 8.30am – 1.30pm

Customers should call 132 296 for more information as required.
