UP TO 1000 people in Goonellabah were without power after a truck hit a power pole in Holland St today.

The truck collided with the pole about 11.45am and Essential Energy was notified soon after.

"The pole holds transformers, so when it happened we turned off the feeder for safety reasons," an Essential Energy spokesman said.

Power was cut to approximately 1000 people and businesses, including IGA supermarket and Subway on Holland St and McDonalds and other businesses in Laurel Ave.

Power was restored by 1pm and repairs are expected to continue until 10pm tonight.
