    Maybe they didn't have the instructions...

    No, they didn't have the suitable cable cover for the job... 9 cables and a 5 cable trough... but they did have lots of tape... and tape is like chocolate frosting... you can cover-up just about any disaster with a thick enough application.



    There are alternatives (if the duct tape compromise solution fails in practice):

      Is it the fault of the bridge that the river is now too wide? (Astute observation, Mark, as to the number of cable vs. the number of channels.) Great photo, though. I think I've worked with that show's crew, BTW. Mark C.

        Wow, failure to use the proper tool for the job. Close enough is exactly what the lawyer hopes to hear

          I had never seen a "bridge" like that though - I mean - if it would happen to be the right size - it would be awesome! I "hate" cables - out where people walk - but it happens a lot.

              A good example of making a problem worse with an inadequate solutuion. Seen it several times myself...
