If it is about to keel over I sure as sugar would not be sat next to it pointing at it, even if that meant missing out on getting my fizog all over social media.

It's not going anywhere as long as the live wires hold it up. Those reinforcing wires are strong and many.

 

I thought it was as a result of a collision but the tube at the front is intact so not. I'm guessing but manufacturing fault left a weak spot right there. Perhaps concrete not vibrated properly.

Changed my mind. Those reinforcing wires should, IMO be more in the middle of the pole, not right at the side. One wonders what sort of quality checks they have of all those power poles around LOS during manufacture?

I'd like to see higher up the pole. If, as I think, the two tubes are in fact the pole stays that have not been used, it would explain a lot. They quite often remove them from the ground anchors and leave the poles unbraced. It's a wonder more poles don't fail.

Nothing will get done until it falls on a car or bus,

then they will have to come out to fix it....until then...

Nah, don't worry it'll never fall.

 

It will simply be suspended by the myriad of power, phone and internet cables, of which probably 80% are redundant and non functioning.

 

Which if you think about it makes the whole process of never removing non functioning cable perfectly reasonable, since it supports crapped out posts.

 

It'll make you look at that cable spaghetti in any given Thai town or city with a whole new respect, as safety enhancement to your community!

The same PEA that were informed about a transformer that blew out on Walking Street, but it was early in the morning, and raining, so they ignored it and someone was electrocuted as a result.

No. The reinforcing should be as close to the edge with sufficient coverage to properly embed the bars and privide protection.

The centre is the neutral axis and any reinforcing located there provides insignificant and inefficient resistance to failure.

The photos are not clear but there does not seem to be any ligatures which are required and especially so, when using small diameter reinforcing.

One day I will start a website specializing in pictures of Thais finger pointing.  And we can make a top 10 list.
