[NSW]Power outage from Inner West to Bexley, Ashfield to Bankstown

Discussion in 'Hazardous Road Condition Reports' started by 666damo, Aug 22, 2013.

  1. Hey guys,

    There was a power outage across a good portion of suburbs during my ride home from ~16:35.
    Power seems to be back on, at least in some of these suburbs now ~17:30.

    Affected area:


    On the lighter side of the traffic chaos this has caused, and is still causing, it was nice to have a motorcycle-only lane down the middle of parked cars with police waving us on.

    Unfortunately, with lights out, cagers are taking the opportunity to jump out of side streets / intersections which are usually traffic light controlled, so be careful.

    trains on Bankstown line are affected also.
  2. I don't live in Sydney :)
    But please remind me why we are all paying high energy prices because the companies are spending so many millions on upgrading the network?
