What Simon didn't add is around the neighbourhood, the power lines
are still above ground. It isn't unforseeable that these will be
buried at some point. Just not sure of the time frames.
A lot of Mt eden, Mt Roskill, Sandringham area all have power lines
They did bury the power lines at the Sandringham Rd shops a couple of
months back. A lot of rah rah rah in the local paper about how it
beautifies the place etc (job also included doing the footpath nicely
etc). However I wouldn't be surprised if nothing else but power was
laid down there.
Getting a Council to
accept microtrenching is a challenge, but maybe we can all pressure them on
that one. They certainly want the development.
So even if this doesn't happen,
perhaps putting things in motion so
when the move is to bury the power cables, they will have to lay
some other cables down there (even if it is just pipes with strings
along there so someone can later on pull fibre/cat5 through.
