Tiang Provider on the Brink of Collapse, Endangering Road Users on the Sibetan-Bebandem Route
/ist/Tiang Provider Nyaris Tumbang, Bahayakan Pengguna Jalan di Jalur Sibetan-Bebandem.
Several provider poles installed on the edge of the Sibetan highway to Bebandem, Karangasem are almost collapsed onto the road on Thursday (6/4/2023).
This situation is dangerous for road users considering that this route is quite crowded and is the main route for residents from Selat and Rendang Districts to go to Karangasem city.
Based on observation, the position of the pole is on the south side of the road from the west (Selat). Not only one pole, but there are also several provider poles in the location, where some have collapsed, while one is almost collapsed onto the road with the cables still attached.
Since morning until afternoon around 14.00 WITA, the condition of the pole remains the same. Until this news was written, there has been no owner or related party seen to handle the pole for repair.
“Yes, since the morning, the condition has been like this, some have collapsed, and some poles are about to collapse, and the cables are quite low,” said Gede Suar, one of the riders who passed through the location.
Previously, the Regent of Karangasem, I Gede Dana, admitted that he had instructed related agencies to immediately regulate the existence of these provider poles. “I have instructed to regulate as soon as possible, if it is not according to the mechanism, the Civil Service Police Unit (Pol PP) must immediately take action,” he said.
Gede Dana also admitted that the installation of these provider poles was installed haphazardly, including in roadside gutters, so if they collapse, it could potentially endanger road users.
