     We have a case where 2 paths, between 151 front to somewhere in 
Markham, ended up overlapping 3 times for about 300m total :(

     And to cap the whole thing off...  Enter the building thru the same 

     You pretty much need to be onsite supervising the whole thing up.

like a gas station, an electrical grids, etc =D.  Pretty impressive.

     PS: As rodent, you mean the punks that fire bomb "that" conduit 
under "that" bridge, a few years back?
