Power cut in Tahunanui


More than 1200 homes and businesses were affected by a power cut in Tahunanui this afternoon and Network Tasman says it will work late into the night to fix the fault.

Most of the connections have been resorted but Network Tasman says there are still about 15 businesses, near Tahuna Beach, that are without power.

Nelson Live had several messages from residents saying the power went out at about 4pm this afternoon. Power was restored to most after about 45 minutes.

Network Tasman says there was a fault on a stretch of cable that services the area where Natureland is.

“It’s a bit of a process to fix this cable. We don’t know the exact cause yet but we will be working into the night to get it fixed,” says Network Tasman network manager Murray Hendrickson.
