BT responsible for 1 in 3 illegal roadworks in London

Monday 1 February 2016 | 17:53 CET | News
BT is responsible for 1 in 3 illegal roadworks in London, reports the Guardian. Data from Transport for London (TfL) shows that London commuters have been delayed by more illegal roadworks for BT than for any other utility provider. BT has just been fined more than GBP 6,000 by Westminster magistrates court for another offence, its 28th prosecution in the last five years. It has been issued fixed penalties for another 650 infringements.
