Authorities decide to remove power poles on Haʻapai road

The power poles erected by the electricity provider on the roads at Holopeka in Liffuka, Haʻapai would be removed the Governor for Haʻapai has told Kaniva News today.

Governor Moʻale Fīnau said he met with Tonga Power manager and project manager and they decided to remove the poles that erected almost in the middle of the road.

Finau said this means the power line will be connected without poles in that particular area.

Kaniva understands the poles were erected after the Ministry of Land and Survey’s surveyors found the road where the poles were erected on cut through a tax allotment.
