How a powerline came to be placed in the middle of the road
A post on Friday by the Bushbuckridge Municipality to announce that the powerlines placed in the middle of the road had been removed left many wondering how the pole came to be placed in the road in the first place.
The story was first reported in July in another post by the municipality noting the issue which first occurred in March 2019.

It was not just one pole either.
On Friday 4 October the municipality announced that the poles have now been moved.

While it should never have happened in the first place, it does appear that the issue happens occasionally elsewhere too.
