This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.


Dear Electrical and Mechanical Services Department,

We are looking for historic records of electricity pole maintenance in Hong Kong, in addition to time of failure and cause of failure.

Utility pole failure rates can usually be determined by modeling 3rd party factors. We are looking at predicting failures for an academic study

Please advise how we can get this data

Yours faithfully,

Wendy Chen
