    Hi,

    I am currently digging a 600mm trench to lay mains electrics from my house to the new garage which requires buiding regs sign off. My question is what to do when I have to cross the sewage pipes in the drive do I have to go under the existing drainage or can I bring the cable over the top of the drains which will give me less than 600mm depth?

    Any advice much appreciated.

    Logic would say go under, should the drains ever need replacing that is. ;)
