For the past 12 months, Fairfield, Smithfield, Cabramatta and Bonnyrigg Heights have been subject to “TOLing” — being placed “temporarily off line” (TOL) on some days.

The measure was part of a state government cost-cutting measure which was a concern for the council, Fairfield state Labor MP Guy Zangari and a Fire Brigade Employees Union.

At a council meeting in August, union representative Brendan Rea told councillors that being TOL was “dangerous”.
