The leaks beneath our feet

Gas leaks

What's the incentive to fix these leaks when they can pass the cost of lost gas onto the consumer?

leaks mess up bike lanes

because patches seed potholes. Center Street in Roslindale is an example - newly paved, but even newer patches all over the bike lane, covering the lane striping and bike symbol, seeding potholes. Beacon St. at the top of Chestnut Hill/Boston College eastbound Newton next to BC is another example, and here it is particularly dangerous because the patches are starting to sink and the cars move fast next to bicyclists headed down the hill.

This makes so much sense

This makes so much sense now... The first day I moved here a few years ago I noticed that the intersection of Boylston/Park/Brookline in the Fenway reeked of natural gas. You can smell it around the Fenway T stop, too.
