The Antigua Public Utilities Authority (APUA) is working on temporary internet and landline connections in Gunthorpes after a backhoe dug up underground cables in the area on February 24.
Sharifa George, APUA’s public relations coordinator, told OBSERVER media that contractors were doing work in Lightfoot that resulted in disruption of services to its customers in the western part of Gunthorpes.
“The damage to the cables is quite extensive,” George stated.
She added that there is no timeline on when work on these temporary connections will be completed, but according to an APUA press statement, services are to be restored within the coming days.
“What we are trying to do is work towards a temporary connection so that persons do not have to wait until we are able to rebuild the infrastructure that was damaged. We will work on permanent fixtures as time goes by,” George explained.
“We’re going to have to splice new cables, rebuild new manholes and it takes a lot of time,” the coordinator added.
