    Connections into vent not underground, post 5 misleading. Sink waste can boss onto vent up to 500mm above ground. Shower waste depends on branch to WC. 110mm Tee to WC with provision for 40mm boss at 90 degrees would suit if branch can be positioned low enough to give 1:40 fall from shower but best solution would be to have WC branch coming in at level of WC outlet, approx. 150mm above floor and use new back inlet gully, connected independently to main run, for shower and sink waste. Tell your plumber to start digging.

    A polypipe SWA43 gives you two boss inlets in the same plane on the same fitting.

    Costs way more than a pair of strap bosses though...

    Or alternatively use a soil manifold which may work out better

    I also never liked them. Handy if a boss fitting is a hard job to fit. They always look an add on and if the solvent has been plastered all over the joint makes them an eyesore.

    Double socket, same side
    And it looks like 2 the other side as well.

    Turn the 110 branch into a rodding access.
    Or turn it around and bury it in the wall.
