What Colour is Electricity?...
On the pavements near where I live are hundreds of brightly coloured markings. Above is a snap I took of those right outside my place.
The pavement slabs are about to be replaced and so a guy from the council has been around with a weird metal detector/paint dauber marking the slabs in different colours identifying where all the under-pavement pipes lie so the layers don't drill into one of the pipes. What is interesting me was what colours means what?
I'm guessing each colour represent one utility; gas, water, sewage, electricity? cable TV? telephone? Anyone know which colour actually represents? I think blue means water.
