Kapiti Street Light times
February 2015

Electra has experienced a problem with the plant which sends signals to switch street lights on and off in the Kapiti area.  This has meant that streetlights will sometimes not go on exactly at sunset or off exactly at sunrise, as per normal.

This situation will likely continue for the next few months until specialised replacement plant is delivered and installed.

Please note that this does not affect any other timetabled signals such as night rate.
