Just when you think you've seen it all...
A real good one, indeed!
Are those lines low or medium voltage? To my eye the ones the guy is working on look like low voltage.

on this photo on bottom "conductor" or cable what the person is working on that is commuation cable .

let start from the top lines the top line is primary hot line useally 13.8 KV or 24.4 Kv [depending on local spur]
next line below the hot conductors is the primary netural line

third and fourth line i belive it is televison cable line

the bottom most line is telephone or telecomuattion line [ this is very typical for commuation line to be below of power system but offhand i am not too crazy with televison cables i heard some horror story about it ]

Merci , Marc

It looks dangerous at first glance but isn't he tied off to the top conductor with a safety cable?

That's for sure Roger.
If you got caught doing that sort of thing here, you could expect instant dismissal.
I'd be interested to see how the ladder is tethered to the bucket.

I'd never trust any sort of cable to hold my wieght, if you did fall you could bring the whole lot down on yourself.
