  • Eventually received a reply. Told me there is a cable fault. Not given any time frame for repairs. Got the impression they do not really care.

  • Hi. Such cable repairs are undertaken by Western Power Distribution and GCC have no control over when they complete their work. These light will be in the queue and suddenly, one day, they'll be working.
