Power outage knocks out traffic signals along Gold Coast Highway

Palm Beach residents are waking to a bit of chaos on the roads, with a number of traffic signals on flash due to an outage.

The power’s gone out for homes and businesses along the Gold Coast Highway, in the vicinity of Jefferson Lane, 11th and 12th Avenues, and Cypress Terrace.

Only about 180 properties have been affected, but it’s left a couple of lights on flash at two intersections.


Energex is understood to be on scene trying to repair the outage and working on signals at 11th and 15th Avenue.

The cause of the outage is not yet known, with techs still investigating the issue.

Motorists are being urged to use caution along the Gold Coast Highway.

More to come.

Typical Labor party! 😠😠😠

Even though I am an LNP & One Nation voter, what does that have to do with the price of fish? The problem is that the lack of electrical infrastructure built from the 1980s that is so unreliable and faulty for today’s 2020s standards (40 years ago)! A monkey can even figure this out without needlessly going to silly childish pointless political pointscoring quite honestly.

Sky high electricity bills and still more and more outages? 🤦🤦🤦🤦🤦🤦
