UPDATE: A wooden power pole, which is temporarily replacing a concrete pole hit by a truck in Maryborough, should be in place about 2pm.
Ergon Energy corporate communications manager Rod Rehbein said workers would then start moving the power lines across to the new pole.
"So that'll be into the early evening probably before the network is back to its normal configuration," he said.
"Obviously after that we start working on, in a few days, getting the new concrete pole and redo the moving of the wires."
EARLIER UPDATE: A crane is supporting a 66,000-volt concrete power pole on Maryborough's Alice St after it was hit by a truck carrying a front-end loader on Monday afternoon.
A police media spokesman said Alice St between Ferry and Tooley Sts remained closed while Ergon was working to replace the pole.
It's believed Hungry Jacks was temporarily evacuated on Monday after the crash.
Ergon Energy corporate communications manager Rod Rehbein said a structural engineer assessed the situation on Monday and decided there no immediate risk while the truck remained in place.
He said a crane was brought to the scene to support the pole and was in place after 8pm on Monday.
Mr Rehbein said some customers lost power after the crash but no one was without power on Tuesday morning.
