Aesthetically, burying lines always makes sense. Sadly not enough
communities (and definitely too few governments) place any value on
aesthetics at all.

I've never heard anyone, ever, say "Golly, what a lovely profusion of
cables this place has! How charmingly they subdivide the view of the
sky! How delightfully they criss-cross every street and laneway!"
