How to get Utility Companies to play fair?

…Don’t rely on the intervention of the government and approach them directly of course. It’s long been the bane of Sydney riders that freshly-laid infrastructure – a kerb ramp, shared path, a road re-sheet or even a cycleway –  is undermined by a trench-dig of one of the big utility (water, gas, electricity) companies.  Riders […]
