In the construction and maintenance of new roads, underground distribution lines are favored over aboveground lines, for reasons of safety, ease of repair, and aesthetics.
Need to navigate traffic above and below ground?
Road repair crews are often required to dig around underground cables (as opposed to through them), at times in very heavy traffic. Time is of the essence, and there is little room for error.
Solutions for the Roads & Transportation Industry
Road maintenance crews reach for a Schonstedt Magnetic Locator to pinpoint iron objects underground, such as enclosures, vaults, handholds and culverts.
They rely on Schonstedt Pipe & Cable Locators to find and trace the path and depth of underground pipes and cables under concrete or asphalt.
