238 kms of ‘dead cable, wires’ removed in Cagayan de Oro

CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY – The National Telecommunications Commission said a total of 238 kilometers of “dead wires and cables” were untangled and cleaned up by the city’s Task Force Hapsay Kable (Cables in Order) throughout 2018.

NTC regional director and task force vice chairperson Teodoro Buenavista Jr., there were also 69 poles that were “retired” and another 108 alley arms removed.

A photo released by the National Telecommunication Commission shows workers commissioned by the Task Force ‘Hapsay Kable’ continue to untangle “dead wires and cables” from power poles in Cagayan de Oro City.

He said the project would have its different phases, and that the recovered wires and cables would be donated to organizations and process them into reusable materials. The task force was formed by virtue of Executive Order No. 172-2017, then known as the “CDO ICT Task Force on Cables and Wires,” signed by Mayor Oscar Moreno in November 2017.

The project has become a joint initiative of the city, NTC-10, telecommunication players, civil society organizations, and professional groups. (Nef Luczon)
