Low lying or fallen power lines
Quite often power poles and lines succumb to PNG’s unpredictable and often wild weather seasons. Strong winds, heavy rains, and factors like trees falling affect the distribution network around the country.
Often you will come across a leaning power pole with low power lines due to heavy rainfall and strong winds. In worst cases, you will see fallen power poles and/or power lines caused by trees falling on them.
If you see low lying or downed (fallen) power lines, please inform PNG Power immediately.
Low lying or downed power lines pose high risks of injury or even death if you go near them.
Please stay away from fallen power lines and report it to:
