Re: Depth of cable ?

there is no legal standard as to what depth is used.
it will vary depending on the install.

is there a particular issue you need dealt with?

The standards that are available relate to utilities/services under public highways and footpaths.

There are regular posts on the forums about the way in which VM install their cables. Some show cables laying on the surface unprotected, some use a green flexible conduit to contain the cable which is then laid on the surface and, in some cases, the cable may be buried just below the surface, with or without the protective conduit.

Are you posting because of an unsatisfactory installation?
