This is pathetic, and it never seems to end. 

 

The installation electrical specialist who did that work should hang from the top of that pole. 

But those in control spout everything is safe.......That is so daft it is unbelievable..

There are a dozen similar shoddy, exposed electrical connections throughout that park. Was there earlier today doing a bit of exercise. The reported repairs are typical Thai style, lots of electrical tape and best described as temporary. Not the standard you’d expect from a qualified engineer.
