Engineers are continuing to work on an electrical fault in the Fulwood area.


Homes in Conway Drive have been hit with on-off power since Wednesday (14 June).

Electricity North West said they were experiencing a ‘transient fault’ in the area.

Engineers have arrived onsite and installed specialist equipment to locate the fault – which was traced on Saturday according to a spokeswoman.

A full repair was carried out on Saturday and reinstatement work is continuing into Tuesday (20 June) to ensure power remains on in the road.

Alison May, who lives in one of the 30 properties affected, said: “They’ve been digging up parts of the road during Sunday.

“The power has been on/off around 20 times since Wednesday evening. It’s a nightmare!”
