This is exactly how my street cabling is installed. There is a slab 
for access (that breaks by large trucks parked on it occasionally, 
leaving a gaping hole in the footpath that isn't a footpath because 
they saved money by not putting them on my side of the street). All 
services are underground - phone, gas, water, electric. I don't know 
what the conduits themselves look like, though.

My estate has been here for probably 15 years or so. I've been here 8 
1/2 years.
