Agency is using this exercise
to also identify fallen, broken,
abandoned and substandard
masts for subsequent removal
across the State.
The statement also informed
that the enumeration exercise is
consistent with the vision of the
present administration’s smart
and cleaner city.
According to the release,
“The operation team will be on
the lookout for indiscriminate
and illegal installation of fibreoptic
cables on walkways and
“The team will also take note
of all hallow pipes masts which
do not meet the specification
permitted by LASIMRA”.
While noting that the exercise
is quarterly based, the statement
appealed to stakeholders who
have not paid their annual
renewal fees for 2018 to make
payment in order to avoid any
penalty; it implored mast owners
to desist from illegal installation
and use of substandard materials.
