RE: [ESP] Paisajismo peligroso. / [ENG] Dangerous landscaping.

Hey, buddy @marcosmilano71! Thank you for sharing another significant environmental concern regarding the proper urban design and landscape planning in your neighborhood! With your last post about the sidewalk problems, it's also crucial to consider their overhead spaces. Electrical wirings, cables installed on poles or columns, and street lighting above streets pose a risky situation as they easily get tangled with large and overgrown trees. No wonder, some highly developed countries install and bury their electrical and power systems underground - inside pipes, culverts, or other safer alternatives. As a result, there are no interferences with the growing foliage and plantations above our streets and sidewalks. Shouldn't all modern urban centers follow the same?

More blessings and have a great day!

Hey, buddy @storiesoferne. Good morning. I'm sorry you didn't answer before. Thank you for your review. You make a statement and at the same time ask me a question, quote: "As a result, there are no interferences with the growing foliage and plantations above our streets and sidewalks. Shouldn't all modern urban centers follow the same? "end of date. I presume that in a way it is safer; however, security must also be taken into account in such a system. I say this because I have seen the explosion three times, by accumulation of sewer gases and vaults of electricity and telephony. I presume static plays an important role or some spark is triggering. Ideally, all wiring would be recessed with safety standards away from roots, foliage, heat and moisture. Thank you for your review. Note: I'm not a subject matter specialist, I'm just moved by empirical observation and experience. Thank you really for the interaction, I like to talk and in this community I have found in you friends who brighten my life. Thank you and infinite blessings for you and your loved ones.

Hola, Amigo @storiesoferne. Buenos días. Disculpe usted que no había respondido antes. Gracias por su comentario. Usted formula un enunciado y a la vez me hace una pregunta, cito: "As a result, there are no interferences with the growing foliage and plantations above our streets and sidewalks. Shouldn't all modern urban centers follow the same? ", fin de la cita. Presumo que en cierto modo es mas seguro; sin embargo también en ese tipo de sistema deben tener en cuenta la seguridad. Digo esto porque he visto en tres ocasiones la explosión, por acumulación de gases de alcantarillas y bóvedas de electricidad y de telefonía. Presumo que la estática juega un papel importante o alguna chispa son detonantes. Lo ideal sería empotrar con estándares de seguridad todo el cableado alejándolo de raíces, follaje, calor y humedad. Gracias por su comentario. Nota: No soy especialista en la materia solo me mueve la observación empírica y la experiencia. Gracias de verdad por la interacción, me gusta conversar y en esta comunidad he encontrado en ustedes amigos que alegran mi vida. Gracias e infinitas bendiciones para ustedes y para sus seres queridos.

Yes, you're right! I agree that issues might also crop up in underground systems especially if electrical and gas lines are installed close to each other due to poor workmanship and lack of technical expertise. Electricity might spark the combustible gases and thus become a huge fire hazard. Well, I think it would still boil down to the proper, secure, and careful planning plus implementation of such devices in order to prevent major accidents from happening. Glad to interact with you, and thank you for your helpful insights!
