  1. Obtained a safe dig plan from uk power networks. Very annoyingly they don't include a key. Does anyone know where I can get hold of one? Specifically interesting in what the green and red lines are the diamond shapes NR .15a +sl Also, is it possible to find out for a given substation any info on the earthing system etc? Thanks in advance
  2. Planning a very minor trench excavation to bring in a new gas supply and water main. I've got the safe dig plan from my gas network SGN and looks fine for where I want to dig but just curious what some of the symbols which are not included in their key mean. Assuming 250 PE means a 250mm Polyethylene pipe? So what are 8" SI, 125 FF etc? What about the speech bubble "650943840"? Their key:
  3. Hi, I had a guy out this morning to locate the pipes that I may have mentioned on a previous thread. The pipes are as shown on our title map which is approx 1-1.5m away from where they show on the utility map. As I was almost certain this was where they were due to the map plus the position of markers above ground I have worked on a solution to get around this. The guy was also able to tell me that the top of the pipe is just over 1m deep. Would it be doable to get a couple of guys out to dig a hole this deep by hand to locate the exact top of the pipe? I am going to need to know the exact position as even 100mm will make a difference.
  4. Lo! The narrow bucket on my digger runneth over! It has had it's fill with clay, and when it has had it's fill with clay , it doth make a mess of the trench. I can't be the only person really fed up with clearing out a bucket full of clay - in my case it needs a crow bar to get it out. What I need is a cheek-less bucket. Is there such a thing? Or do I get going with a grinder?
