City cleans up stray wires

Abandoned wires on the city's utility poles will be removed and cleaned to improve Shanghai's appearance for the World Expo next year.

The clean-up started today across 200 kilometers of streets, mainly in downtown areas and around the Expo site, said Yang Zhiming, director and senior engineer of the Shanghai Roads and Pipelines Supervisory Office.

The wires include telephone lines and army and police communications, Yang said.

Companies started to register their wires on the poles in this May, Yang said.

"Unregistered wires will be regarded as abandoned or idle and will be torn off," Yang told Shanghai Daily today.

The campaign is expected to be finished by the end of next March, authorities said.

This morning, unregistered wires on 13 poles near No.2 Zhongshan Road N. and Jiangpu Road in Yangpu District started to be cut off.
