A power cut is set to hit just over 30 homes across for Bolton postcodes tomorrow.

According to Electricity North West, the power cut is set to come into effect on Tuesday May 31 and will cause homes across the BL5 3LT, BL5 3LS, BL5 3LR, BL6 4EY postcodes, coming to a total of 31 homes between Westhoughton, Lostock and Middlebrook.

The utilities company says 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 Bolton, 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.
