On the z-52 alignment we've been working on (heading west) we have perms to all plots out to x-625 except the following:
-75/-75 infamouspally was happy for us to build through that plot; now owned by finalmoe so need to speak with him
-125/-75 TornadicManiac ... Chubsy has perms and is a 50/50 owner IIRC, so I'm hoping to catch him online to discuss it
-175/-75 VVolfie is holding this plot for alexrybicki, who has said he's fine with the tube running through that plot

And yet spawn extends mainly in the four cardinal directions, so it makes sense to build the tubes as close to x0 z0 as possible. It might only take 10 seconds to get to the 'main hub' at z-350, but if you then head east or west you exit the tube 350 blocks away from z0. For any builds on the main east / west roads that are within 500 blocks of spawn, it would be quicker to just run directly there rather than take the tube. Seems a bit of a waste.
