    Linesmen stringing new power cables between power poles ....

    Ute parks on busy Ratty Tit Rd. 2 men alight, one drags a bamboo ladder over and leans it against a power pole. Ladder extends out into traffic flow. NO witches hats, NO traffic control!
    1st man climbs ladder and steps out onto the mass of overhead spaghetti-like power lines. 2nd man drags new cable end off roll in back of ute, ascends ladder and passes cable to his mate. 1st man walks barefoot along the overhead lines dragging cable to the next pole ... this is Thailand 5555

    Wish I had a video of this work. Anyone else have pics?
    Cheers, Rob.

    May only be a "what the" moment for me because I was doing an apprenticeship at an electrician. In the pic below are 2 exposed wires taped together with a steel cage as a protector. If the steel cage is touched by exposed wires becomes a disaster 555

    Thanks Rob, There are some good pics there. Shocking that it was to happen but after seeing the set up I am not surprised.

    I did see when at BKK Airport that there were a bunch of Thai Men climbing through the external structure to clean the windows with no ropes/safety harnesses carrying a bucket of water, clothes tools etc. They would then repel down the windows on a single rope with no harness again.... Crazy
