PHUKET: Following its announcement of September 6 concerning planned blackouts, the Phuket Provincial Electricity Authority (PPEA) today said that the blackout scheduled for Friday (September 22) has been canceled. On that day there was scheduled to be a blackout from Chalong Circle to Baan Laem Promthep, including Viset Rd, Baan Bangkontee, Baan Saiyuan, Nai Harn Beach, Ao Sane, Baan Kokmakham, Baan Laem Ka, Baan Rawai and Ya Nui Beach. This blackout will now not take place, the PPEA explained, because it is not ready to carry out the work. All other scheduled blackouts – during which the PPEA will clear tree branches and install insulating covers on power lines in various parts of Phuket – will take place as planned, the PPEA said.
