Dangling danger for motorists

Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, September 13

Loosely hanging overhead cables and wires in different parts of the city pose a grave risk to people. The authorities concerned have failed to check the menace.

Motorists and pedestrians find it risky while moving on inner roads. The wires can be seen dangling quite low on roads. At some places, after doing their work, the contractors concerned have left wires hanging loosely.

"Cables used by cable network/Internet providers are dangling dangerously. These are not only likely to cause accidents but also give a shabby look to the city. Certain poles being used for these cables are also not erected properly. The MC needs to check this nuisance," said Joginder Singh, a local resident.

Another resident, Aman Sharma, said, "This is a big problem as cable operators and telecommunication companies are spreading their web across the city. This needs to be stopped urgently."

Chandigarh Residents' Association Welfare Federation (CRAWFED) chairman Hitesh Puri said it was an old issue and the authorities had failed to address it. "We will take up the issue with the authorities once again," he said.

A senior officer said they had asked private companies to ensure that no such cables or wires were left dangling.
