Vancouver, B.C., is experimenting with the “V-pole”, a compact pole that combines street lighting with other functions like telecomm, parking paystations, electric vehicle charging and a host of other possibilities.

Should we try it here?

  1. good grief YES , our streets are littered with various redundant obstructions. The issue is probably that each object belongs to a different agency or company. Who is in charge?

  2. I guess if you were to run into one it would make you smarter too. In a marinas they started combinlng services to individual slips via power pedtal about 30 yrs. ago.
