The Overhead

Maintaining the trolley wires is a job for electricians who specialize in this work. Trolley buses in Vancouver run on 600V DC. Here a broken cable is being spliced together.

I can only guess at the miles of overhead in Vancouver but it's in the hundreds of miles at the very least.

There's a law about posting cranes two days in a row. You might want to contact your attorney.
