UPDATE: Bryanston power expected to be restored by 10pm
Residents say they’ve been left without electricity for more than 28 hours.
JOHANNESBURG - City Power says it expects electricity to be restored in Bryanston by 10pm tonight.
Residents in the northern Johannesburg suburb say they've been without power for more than 28 hours.
Engineers were earlier delayed from accessing the cable because it's located on private property.
They've now been granted access and have started repair work.
City Power's Mdu Nzimande said, "We are digging the road, we are repairing that first and because we still need to do some excavating, we will need another four hours."
Nzimande earlier said, "It runs through The Campus; I had a meeting with the senior management of The Campus and they've allowed us access. We are preparing the entire circuit (sic)."
