Let’s clear away the telegraph poles

An interesting request from Richard Owen for the removal telegraph poles in his street – Overstone Road in Hammersmith.

He says:

“The majority of London streets have dispensed with them, and the poles plus cobweb of wires make a significant visual impact in a historic conservation area. We are due a major repair programme to pavements and roadway in the next few years and that might also be an opportunity to take out the poles.”

These pictures of Cerrigydrudion High Street – ironically courtesy of the “Telegraph Pole Appreciation Society” – show what a difference removing the clutter makes.

  1. Re suggested removal of telegraph poles and unsightly wires in Overstone Street – great idea in my opinion! Could the same be done for the poles in Cardross Street ?
