How is a cable repaired that has been placed 10 cms under soil and been severed by a garden spade? Why would it be put there in the first place?! Nothing to show it was there. Engineer booked for tomorrow - will he have the right equipment?
You basically have to remember its there. Cables are & always have been only buried 6 to 10 inches down. Even when trunking it is put in (most of the original companies that put these drop lines in didn't bother) it is lightweight & will not stop a shovel.
As far as a resolution is concerned, if there is enough slack in the cable a "gel-pack" connector can be used. But bear in mind this will only be buried to the same depth. If there is not enough slack then a drop line repull will be required. This is a separate two man contractor job & will cause delays at present, if other posts on the forum are anything to go by.
