Cable Confusion in Udon Thani

There must have been important problems that forced the technicians and workers of the TOT (state telephone and communications company in Thailand) and of cable television companies in Udon Thani to come to work at Nong Sim Lake on Sunday. 


Or maybe they wanted to utilize the lower traffic volume of the weekend to bring the chaotic wiring on the poles along the road under control. Anyway, there was no search for chocolate Easter bunnies there on the poles on Easter Sunday.



Equipped with ladders and scaffolding, they proceeded to strip the old cables and to lay new ones.                                               


Certainly not an easy task to keep everything under control and ensure no tangles!


The cables, which had almost developed lives of their own over the years as they had grown together, were now separated,

before the real work begins at the nodal points of the poles, with the use of special tools.

The coordinated teamwork of the specialists on the ground

with their colleagues on the ladders; plenty of rest, double-checking and patience and non-adherence to all safety rules that are vital to work in close proximity to power lines,

in the end leads to the fact that the new cables

a short time later

looked exactly the same as the old ones!
