Friday 15 June 2018 — GOLD COAST GAS SUPPLY RESTORATION
APA repair crews have completed gas safety checks to approximately 4,000 homes in the affected area. This leaves approximately 1,000 homes still needing to be visited.
APA repair crews are active in all remaining areas and will work through till 10pm in order to reconnect residents as soon as possible.
While we are progressing in line with our reconnection schedule, due to the inability to gain access to all properties, there is likely to be a small number of homes still needing to be connected over the weekend.
A number of gas fitters will be in the area to respond to consumers who need assistance.
If you wish to safely turn on your gas supply by yourself, this link provides the instruction how to turn on your gas safely.
