Telus restores service in Vancouver neighbourhood

Briefs | 08/23/2007 1:12 pm EDT

Telus Corp. has restored service in a Vancouver neighbourhood after a construction crew cut two fibre-optic cables there. A team working on the Canada Line rapid-transit system chopped the connective wires on Monday, leaving more than 800 Telus customers in the West Broadway and Cambie Street area without service. According to Telus spokesman Shawn Hall, service was restored just after noon yesterday. He confirmed that this is the third time in four months that a Canada Line construction crew has severed Telus service. Hall said Telus is investigating the situation with help from Canada Line.
