FRIDAY, JULY 27: At approximately 4:35 am, the transformer inside the Park Road substation tripped due to a fault on a related piece of equipment. Electricity service was restored at approximately 6:09 am. The cause of the fault is being investigated.
Work will commence this morning to install a new, second transformer in the Park Road Substation, replacing the one that was damaged yesterday.
Traffic in the area of Park Road will be disrupted today from approximately 9:30 am to 11:30 am, and again in mid-afternoon, as large equipment is moved to and from the substation. Every effort will be made to minimize disruption, but motorists are advised to use alternate routes in mid-morning and mid-afternoon today.
BELCO apologizes for the interruption of service and thanks customers for their patience.
