TELEKOM Malaysia (TM) workers are in the process of attending to a tree which has fallen on one of its cables along a Luyang housing road.

A TM spokesman said its staff would arrange to have the tree removed and repair any damage to the overhead line in question.

“The base of the tree appears to have rotted away, causing it to topple over,” he said.

“There was a slight delay in attending to this problem as our staff were tied up attending to similar problems in another part of the State Capital.” 

ELLYSE of Luyang had initially been under the impression that the tree had hit a power line as the electricity in her home and surrounding area had been disrupted.

“Several hours later, I saw some workers dealing with the portion of the tree which had encroached on the housing road nearby,” she said.

“They chopped up the trunk into more manageable pieces and cleared the branches from the road.”

She said the supply to her neighbourhood was restored later that same day.

“The next day, when I went for a walk, I was shocked to find that the cable was still pinned down by the remainder of the fallen tree.

“I suspect that this wire might belong to TM and not Sabah Electricity Sdn Bhd.” 

Ellyse said her telecommunications services had been functioning intermittently since the tree fell.

She provided Hotline with the location of the tree trunk and cable in question. This information was forwarded to the firm. (SS)
