Power turn-off no April Fool joke

ENERGEX turned off the lights of four roads in Currumbin Waters today due to maintenance and upgrade works.

Energex is replacing existing transformers for newer ones to improve power supply for that area.

Spokesman from the company Graham Metcalf said it was a standard upgrade.

Power outages are also planned for Currumbin Waters at Currumbin Creek Rd and Hawker St on Sunday, April Fool's Day, from 6.30am to 2.30pm, and Monday along Currumbin Creek Rd from 8am to 5.30pm.
