A cluster of high-voltage lines hanging only 1.5 meters off the ground are worrying residents of Sukhumvit Soi 36.
The cable threat is doubled by a nearby electric transformer, itself wrapped in messy lines. Residents fear a repeat of fires and electrocutions that have occurred in similar circumstances elsewhere.
Pattaya has been moving through the city, cleaning up disorderly cable television, telephone and electrical wires. But clearly workers haven’t gotten to this neighborhood.
