Tangedco Trichy Urban Division has rehabilitated 107 lost electricity poles in the city ahead of the monsoon.Although it has reconstructed the dilapidated poles, there is no agreement on the removal of weak poles and low-lying wires before the rains in the Trichy East and Srirangam divisions, which together control the city's electricity supply.Authorities claim that poor poles were discovered through surveys, but residents object to this, saying that the survey was not thorough.Tangedco said that the urban area contained a total of 119 weak poles.

Officials said a total of 50 locations had been uncovered and all of them had been extracted.Low-lying cables and slack live wires were also addressed.To avoid damage to the power grid during rains, wires interfering with well-grown trees were trimmed in 186 locations.The quality of EB poles in our region is also being monitored and monitored by our team.

Although the pre-monsoon activities in Trichy urban were carried out, the status of similar efforts in Trichy East and Srirangam divisions was not revealed.A electricity line is still running between residential areas in Palur, Srirangam division.Many poor poles remain in localities in Khajamalai and Edamalapatti Pudur, but none of them was repaired, according to the inhabitants.The fragile poles can be identified by a simple survey by field technicians; Khajamalai alone has weak poles at more than three locations.

Residents can file complaints about bent or damaged poles on the helpline 94987-94987, according to Tangedco officials.
