A couple of months back they did some work on one of the lamp-posts in my street – I think they might have actually replaced it, but since I always walked past whilst heavily in though about Linux, I can’t be sure as I wasn’t paying too much attention…
However, either way it appears they bodged the job, and the pole appears to be at a slight angle, meaning that a lot of the lower wires and boxes such as fiber can no longer reach the pole.
See my photo of it here, which shows the mess the wiring has become.
I love how they have used some rope to hold the cables in mid-air. :-) The most amazing thing, is that this has managed to survive many strong, windy days for a few months now. But the wires are looking worse every day.
