The electrical pole and part of the telephone and electrical power lines just adjacent the St Andrew’s Methodist School at the junction of Chapel Road and Seton James Street in Grenville are covered in vines and residents are calling on Flow and Grenlec to send a maintenance crew to the area to clean the lines.
According to one resident in the vicinity, the pole and lines are practically invisible for being covered in vines.
Flow has a branch office on Ben Jones Street in Grenville where bills are paid, while Grenlec has a branch on Seton Brown Street where bills are also paid and the Grenlec branch could be just one hundred feet from where the pole is located. However, it seems that these companies are not aware of what is happening with the electricity pole and lines said, residents.
Informer’s Inside St Andrew was called to the scene last Monday and showed the condition of the pole and power lines.
The resident questioned whether the vine, being attached to both the telephone and electrical lines could have a negative effect on electricity supply. Grenlec and FLOW need to attend to the matter urgently.
