Scheduled upgrades will result in water supply interruptions in Eersterust on Thursday.
The interruption will be from 08:00 to 18:00.
“The worsening conditions of the network infrastructure in Eersterust has prompted the metro to replace the approximately 45-year-old pipeline,” said Bokaba.
Work on the infrastructure started on 13 December 2017.
“From time to time, the network had to constantly be shut down which resulted in consumers not having water at regular intervals,” he said.
Bokaba said about 2 750 metres of water network pipes, isolation valves, fire hydrants and chambers will be replaced.
“The projected end date for the phase one construction is around August 2018 at a contract cost of about R14 million,” he said.
The Tshwane metro apologised for any inconvenience.
