Power pole left in the middle of the road - but nobody mentions it might be dangerous

A story about a power pole left in the middle of construction of a new concrete road hit several Thai media outlets.

 

But neither the Tnews story nor one in more detail from Manager mentioned that it might be dangerous if anyone tried to use the road.

 

Both news media were trying to find out who was responsible.

 

The local administration in Ao Yai, Trat, in Thailand's east, blamed the electric company. While the electric company blamed them for not telling them it needed to be moved.

 

The result was that the pole remains almost squarely in the middle of Soi Lung Somporn as the road nears completion.

 

Apparently some locals said the road should be redirected because of fears of subsidence from a pond but there was a lot of miscommunication.

 

The electric company told Manager they would move it when they get the paperwork.

 

The local mayor Rangwan said his hands were tied - he had to get a move on now it was the rainy season and build the road and felt there was no problem in moving the pole later.

 

Everyone seemed to think it would all get sorted - and no one mentioned it could pose a hazard even though there appeared to be no lighting in the area.

Thai engineering.

 

If you don't like it you can leave. :cheesy:

Do not forget it is the Thai Railway Engineers who have to conduct examination tests on the Chinese railway engineers and qualify them before they can work on the High Speed  rail system. Heaven help those who travel on it.

this whole thing is so wrong on many levels; the end product, as ludicrous as it is, should Never have gotten anywhere near completion, where o where are the brains here ?! someone, a foreman, a manager perhaps, just went blindly right on with this; if it is idiocy, then recognize it,label it and FIX it; i shudder to think what happens in the backrooms of lawmakers here

i bet a whole bunch of us can comment on how foolish and embarassing this should be to thailand; along all that way, might point out the value of the news media here; imagine if they hadnt highlighted this; would it really NOT be addressed ?!

There is nothing to say it will be addressed. Most likely the pole will still be sitting there in 10 years time.

Not all is bad, since this must be the only power pole in Thailand that is placed in concrete

No, here in chiang mai we have them in the gutter, not in the middle but still a hazard. A few of us were having a beer one day and a Thai kid ran into one on his scooter we do not know if he went to sleep or just lost concentration. He was ok not hurt
