    In my area the phone companies are installing 1 Vrad, 1 Cross Connect, 2 pedestals and 1 vault all in a 12 ft x 12 ft area.
    Unfortunately, they covered up the conduit and cabling before I could get a picture but you should have seen the freekin spider web of conduit/cabling running every which direction.

    The vault can be seen just between the vrad and the 2 tel peds near the green post.

    They don't put the two peds in the areas of our VRADs. The hardest part of locating these areas is that alot of the cables actually only run a few feet. This can make for a very difficult locate. I've found the best way to locate it is to unbond all the peds in the area before even trying to locate it. If you just unbond one ped at a time it's hard to locate because the cable runs just a few feet and then you blow your own signal right out of the ped your trying to run to. I don't know if you understand what I'm saying.
