Problem power poles getting regular checks
By Tim Miller
Potentially dangerous power poles in Upper Clutha camping grounds are being checked regularly by lines company staff over the holidays. Before Christmas, Aurora Energy identified and checked the condition of poles in what were considered high-traffic holiday areas, such as camping grounds and parks in Upper Clutha. The company consulted the Queenstown Lakes District Council to identify the high traffic areas.
█ All 1181 condition zero poles in Otago expected to be replaced by April 2017.

In that way we can say we knew, we would replace and it’s just a little unlucky this/these persons were killed before we could get to them. I mean who would expect one person (the CEO) to replace 3000 dodgy poles over the Christmas holiday break when kiwis don’t work.
