From Deacons, we will begin work at Rosemont and Ferniehurst simultaneously, so we will be in the Black Rock area for a while, then we will move to the Ivy."
The upgrading of the electrical systems in the Government housing units is designed to increase capacity and bring the units in line with the current standards of the Government Electrical Engineering Department.??
The programme, which began in February, last year, includes connections to meter bases and breaker panels and includes all units, irrespective of whether persons are owners or tenants.??
