    I must add these from Nakon Sawan late last year. New walk over bridge cables tied to the hand rail.

    Nakon Sawan again. Somchai the City Electrician has spliced into the over head power line and left the cables at just the right height for little Somchai to play with. Strung across the footpath.

    This is the kicker. Somchai has wrapped his splice in Tape but the bolt is still showing. Touch that little baby and its off to see your Maker.

    I love Thailand, this wild shit never happens in Perth.

    I suppose they could blame the wiring on the Red shirts, or the construction on the Burmese.

    OP vid is just fine. Quite logical. Everyone knows the shortest distance between two points is a straight line.

    Looks perfectly OK for Thailand, why some people want to make ploblum? We have had the builders in for 2.5 months on a three week job. Some of the highlights were painting gloss first, then covering with the undercoat. Trying to use a few bathroom tiles to finish off 60 metres of work outside that were totally different in color pattern and size. One worker admitting he was drunk and could not work if not, that explained some to the work! Last sunday our of 4 workers one cleared off to watch muay thai on TV, another was dead drunk and coould not stand up, the demented one just brushing up all day leaving one half heatedly painting who could not be arsed to finish even that. Oh and they just about ruined an expensive boothavorn kitchen, no handles on straight and screws sticking out an inch inside cabinets.
    luckily they wont touch electrics - white mans magic!

    Anyone know what the voltage is on those 3 phase lines you have to duck on the far side? Likely a 7.5 kilovolt line? Tall people may feel some discomfort or frying sensations using that overpass.

    That would be a standard for 50Hz local lines so you are probably right. Not much forgiveness there, eh?

    Thainess.

    I can't recall Singapore or Hong Kong ever demonstrating such mind boggling incompetence as that aberration even 50 years ago.

    Thai really are another fucking species.

    A dangerous metal bolt? Or safe plastic coated terminal block?

    I can't see anything that looks like exposed metal, Terry. If you mean one of the two protruding parts on the joint, the one on the right to me looks like the tape is discoloured due to stretching, but maybe the tape is broken. Hard to be sure.

    Nev has style

    Of course you would not touch it.

    You are a qualified Electrical worker so you know there is every chance it could be live given Somchai's work.

    I reckon it is live. I say that simply because Somchai would not waste Electrical tape on it if it was not live.

    What is astounding is that the work on the pedestrian bridge must have been signed off by the engineer in charge before completion.


    Unless of course the bridge was already there and the electric people just drilled through the steps and put the wires through.

    Either way, just another expensive mistake that comes from unqualified lazy morons entrusted with work that should be left to professionals.

    But of course, when half the budget has disappeared into officials pockets, there is not enough money left to employ professionals and bug chewing bumpkins who will work for a bowl of rice and a slug of homebrew a day have to be given the work.

    What could possibly go wrong eh Terry?

    On the plus side, at least they sleeved the cables before passing them through the bridge.
    So they can't be completely stupid..........Can they?

    It's a cunning plan to attract tourists to the area.
