The confirmation comes after the Provincial Electricity Authority (PEA) announced that the electricity supply will be temporarily shut off in the area on Friday as work is carried out on installing new high-voltage cables.

The areas to be affected by the power outage, from 9am to 4:30 pm, are along Yaowarat Rd, and will affect the Chilva market and Tesco Lotus mall on the bypass road, the notice read.

“Our mall will be open as normal, as we have our own electric generators,” a call operator at the Tesco mall told The Phuket News today.

For more information call the PEA at 076-354379 or call centre 1129.
