A power cut is set to hit homes across six Bury postcodes this weekend.

According to Electricity North West, the power cut is set to come into effect on Sunday June 12 and will cause homes across the BL0 0EG, BL0 0ER, BL0 0EP, BL0 0EJ, BL0 0EH, BL0 0EF postcodes between Ramsbottom and Edenfield to lose power.

A total of 41 homes will be hit, with the utilities company saying that this is to ensure that its engineers can safely complete maintenance works on power cables.

An Electricity North West statement said: “We appreciate your patience while our engineers carry out a planned power cut in your area, this is to improve the reliability of your electricity supply and so our engineers can safely work on the cables that provide electricity to your home or business.”

The company says that once work has begun on the power cables in Bury, they will work to ensure that electricity will be restored as soon as possible.

Electricity North West regularly plans power cuts in order to allow its engineers to carry out maintenance works on cables.

Households and businesses are warned ahead of time on the company’s website.

Engineers are also regularly deployed to tackle unplanned power cuts across the North West.
