    Yeh it does sound worse actually. Should have gone in in black conduit at least. Doesnt sound like it meets reg 134. And presumably they still buried the lights in the shale?

    who designed it, and who supplied the lights? because it's a pants design. the lights should go on the brickwork with short flexes into ad, boxes fed by SWA.

    I don't want to kick you in the teeth but it isn't the best design, I suspect you think the same or else you wouldn't be asking on here, sorry.
