PEA plans tangled-wire cleanup by month’s end

Friday, 07 September 2012 From Issue Vol. XX No. 36 By  Phasakorn Channgam

The Provincial Electrical Authority will launch its largest cleanup of tangled wires throughout Pattaya at month’s end.

PEA Banglamung office assistant manager Narong Theerakamjai met with Councilman Banlue Kullavanijaya, the city’s longtime proponent to clean up the messy-wires issue, Aug. 29 to discuss progress on the cleanup, which began July 30.

Narong said there have been many complaints to the PEA as well as the National Broadcasting and Telecommunication Commission about utility workers’ usual practice of filling power poles with new cables while ignoring dead lines until wires droop, drop and block city views. He admitted the cleanup only came after NBTC ordered the utility to clean up the mess.

PEA in March mapped out a wire-cleanup in 12 regions around the country. In Chonburi, Chantaburi, Rayong, Chachoengsao and Trat a total 18.1 km. of wires will be trimmed.

In Pattaya, work is being carried out on the left side of Thepprasit Road from Sukhumvit Road to Soi Kophai; around Soi Chaiyapruek 2 from Sukhumvit to Naeramit Village; and from Soi Chaiyapruek 1 between Sukhumvit to the Pattaya city border.

Narong directed telephone and cable-television operators to inspect poles in those area and either remove lines installed illegally or color-code working lines before Sept. 30. After that, any unclaimed lines will be removed, he said.

    The person who once said " nothing is impossible" obiviously has never seen the Pattaya " Rubic's Cube " of wiring.
    If their work is done by the " Tree butchers " we will all have no land line phones, TV or electric !
