I need to get a cable buried

I need to get a cable buried

After Hurricane Irma felled a tree and severed a cable, in  October 2017 a new cable was run from pedestal to pedestal from my front yard to my back yard. I have called at least five times, gotten five ticket numbers. Each time the ticket was been closed without explanation.  The last several times the issue has been escalated according to the represenative. Each time there was promised date of completion that passed without any action.  

 

What can be done to get this cable buried?

Re: I need to get a cable buried

If the line runs pedestal to pedestal, it means it's a temporary main line. It's typical for these types of burials to take months to complete, they get mired in red tape. I'll ask a team member to take a look and see if they can give you an idea when this work is scheduled to be completed.
