Planned power cuts to resume

Aurora will resume its planned power cuts after delaying their plans over the last couple of days due to severe weather.

Aurora said it had reviewed its schedule for the outages and would resume their work from Friday as the bad weather headed north.

Areas that will be affected by the power cuts are Alexandra, Queenstown, Frankton, Otago Peninsula and Broad Bay.

Alexandra, South Dunedin, Mosgiel and Kaikorai Valley will be affected on Saturday.

Aurora said all of the planned outages that were cancelled this week would be rescheduled.
