HC Deb 07 December 1949 vol 470 cc155-6W
73. Mr. Collins

asked the Postmaster-General what arrangements are made by his Department for consultation with county authorities in connection with development or repair schemes involving disturbance of carriageway services.

Mr. Hobson

Telephone managers are instructed to keep in close touch with road authorities and to ensure that Post Office underground cable works are synchronised as far as possible with other road operations. This arrangement works well in general and helps to keep road disturbance to a minimum.
