Power in Eldoraigne and parts of Wierda Park in Centurion is expected to be restored at around 22:00 tonight, the metro said.

This latest outage follows the theft of several cables from the Eldoraigne substation.

Technicians are attending to the problem, according to metro spokesperson Selby Moeketsi Bokaba.

At this stage no further information regarding the theft is available.

“We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience caused and wish to plead with the affected residents to allow the city’s technical team to conduct their work unhindered,” said Bokaba.

Cable theft and vandalism of substations remain a problem in the area.

Earlier this month steps had to be taken to improve security at the Heuweloord substation in Centurion to lessen the impact of cable theft interruptions on residents.

Heuweloord residents were left in the dark last month as a result of vandalism at the substation.
