Municipal Services have sent out an alert to all media organisations in Canberra confirming that despite their best intentions, daylight saving did not end at 3am this morning.
Citing unforseen problems with the changeover, the Office of Daylight Saving has announced that it will now end 24 hours later, at 3am on Monday 2nd April.
A spokesperson has apologised for the mix-up, which was a result of rostering issues. The officer responsible for moving ACT time forward one hour was sent home by mistake, so the official ACT time remains in daylight saving mode until the problem is resolved.
It is expected that an official investigation will be underway in normal time next week, in the meantime ACT residents who did the right thing and moved their clocks forward are being asked to put them back one hour for just one more day.
