Bent Papar TM poles to be replaced
Published on: Thursday, July 11, 2019

Telekom Malaysia Bhd (TM) will deploy their contractor to replace several bent service poles including attending to other issues pertaining to their equipment in Kampung Novoung in Papar, soon.    

A resident there contacted Hotline recently to complain about the present condition of the telephone poles along the village road which are either bent, slanting profusely towards the ground or densely blanketed by weeds. 

“These are the problems which I have reported to their branch office in this district in April but to no avail,” said RICHARD, the complainant.

He said the slanting and wrecked pole must be attended to immediately as they are likely to collapse at any time given the current arbitrary weather condition. 

“Who knows they will just collapse tonight or tomorrow because it tends to rain heavily which aggravates by strong winds almost every day at this time of the year,” he added. 

He also pointed out that several poles in that area are severely blanketed by thick weeds. 

“This may hasten the process of corrosion to their equipment and their sturdiness will be compromised because of that,” he said. 

Asked whether the land lines in that village are affected by these problems, he replied no. 

“But they shouldn’t dilly dally just because our internet and telephone line are unaffected by it,” he added. 

TM spokeswoman assured that its contractor would be notified to handle the tasks delivered to them.

“We appreciate the report given to us by the complainant as this will enable us to do the maintenance before anything happen to the land lines,” she added. 

She said an inspection would also be carried out at the adjacent villages there to ensure their equipment are in good condition and free from creepers.  (OV)
