Stage 4 load shedding: Where to expect blackouts in Joburg | Saturday Star

Johannesburg - Eskom has implemented Stage 4 load shedding for the rest of Friday. This means that suburbs in the Johannesburg area can expect rolling blackouts of upto 4.5 hours at a time and in consecutive days. 

The Stage 4 load shedding is expected to persist until 6am on Saturday morning before Eskom gives another update. The power utility has blamed the situation on the persistent rain which it said was causing ‘coal-handling problems’.

But with Joburg experiencing rain as well on Friday, motorists are being urged to drive safely as traffic lights in and around the city will not be working as well, with load shedding heightened at Stage 4. 

Some areas including those grouped under 2A, 2B, 6A and 6B - which include areas such as Wits University, Parktown, Craighall, Hurlingham, Emmarentia, Braamfontein, Auckland Park, Westbury and Westbury, are set to experience blackouts twice between this afternoon and Saturday morning. 

The first blackout is taking place between 12pm and 4.30pm on Friday in areas 2A, 2B, 6A, and 6B, while another round will kick off in the early hours of Saturday morning, from 4am to 8.30am.

Should Eskom persist with Stage 4 load shedding on Saturday and throughout the weekend, more areas will experience a similar fate. 

This is how load shedding will affected Joburg residents on Friday and early Saturday:
