N2 - Sub-Surface utility infrastructure plays a crucial role in modern cities and as such, must ensure that it is sustainable so helping urban environments both to be resilient and prosper in the future. A key component of urban infrastructure projects is streetworks operations, which include: placement, installation, upgrading and renewal of utility infrastructure, all of which are expensive.
