This telephone pole near 19 Tai Peng New Village, like many others on the island, was left behind when new ones were put in. There are two more on the steps that go down from 118 Tai Peng New Village to Yung Shue Long. These are in trees and difficult to photograph, but one is completely rusted and likely to fall in strong winds and the other is broken at the bottom and only held up by the undergrowth.

Responsibility: Lands Department? PCCW? These should be removed.
