I would love to see the face of the guy that gets sent to remove this lamp post.

I have seen wood telephone poles get built around before.

I doubt it is allowed anywhere.


But sometimes a construction schedule is faster than you can get power / telephone companies municipalities to act.

That is why I have seen this happen with wood tel poles.

I have never seen poles end up in balconies but I have seen the walls built up against or around existing poles.


When it is a job with time limits (penalties to the contractor delaying the job) this is what happens.

We did an addition on a large department store and due to the power company not providing the new service the original outdoor pad mount transformer was built around and ended up inside the building for a few months.

Not a good thing to have an oil filled 13,000 volt transformer inside but the AHJ was OK with it. ![icon_rolleyes.gif](upload://iqxt7ABYC2TEBomNkCmZARIrQr6.gif)

Can’t you just see one of the tenants tapping into that post and running all of their electrical services from it? icon_eek.gif


After all, the cost of electricity is rising. Why not let the municipality pay for awhile?

Balconies look like either pre-cast concrete or maybe a welded steel box set up. Third floor balcony is over the pole bend. Pole was there first.


Not allowed to move the pole, no problem build around it

Yes I was thinking of a building but this picture is common too.

This could have been route 6 in Seekonk MA for about 6 months, The power company, the cable company, Municipal Fire alarm all got off the poles. The telephone company did not, so you had a long row of poles in the travel lane of a state highway.

For those that went to the Seekonk meeting this would have been near the Home Depot.

Paul, That surely isn't in Orangeville is it?

And that house brings a new meaning to "Contemporary Housing"

How would you like to be sitting in front of one those windows after a few pops?
