Locals will be waking up to find they’re powerless this morning – unless a loud bang didn’t wake them up last night.
A Powercor Spokesperson says nine properties are without power on Eastern Beach Road after a vehicle struck a power pole.
A spokesperson from Victoria Police said the first triple zero calls came in just after midnight, and there was no serious injuries.
The Powercor website said the estimated time power will be restored was initially 9am, but that’s been pushed back to 12:30pm.
Eastern Beach Road is closed between Bellarine Street and Swanston Street while works continue.
