Telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions tower re­moved

Lethbridge Herald - - HOMETOWN NEWS - LETH­BRIDGE HER­ALD

It was a bit of a land­mark in the city’s in­dus­trial park. But now it’s gone. The Al­taLink telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions tower near 36 Street North has been torn down.

Of­fi­cials say the tower was used for con­trol­ling the elec­tric sys­tem, and it was part of Al­taLink’s of­fice site.

Now that Al­taLink has moved its of­fice, of­fi­cials say there’s no need for the tower so con­trac­tors have taken it down.

The ra­dio traf­fic from the tower has been trans­ferred to an ex­ist­ing fi­bre op­tic line, they add.
