As I've reported before, Cheltenham has seen quite a flurry of BT/OR activity in recent weeks (the current roadworks map shows 15 separate BT works for this week). in the last couple of days they have been active about 200 m from my cab (due to go FTTP). There are currently two holes dug in the ground (with a third area cordoned off). I walked along for a closer look and it looks like they may have broken into existing ducting and there is now cable joined by a long black block which looks very like the ones seen on a pole at http://www.flickr.com/photos/steve_beer/5915610529/i...
Is this just a way of splicing the fibre trunking? I've not seen anything that quite matches these in the various photos of installation elsewhere.
There is no cab in the immediate vicinity, nor are there any signs of trenches being dug to connect to manholes.
Now with pic: http://www.ipernity.com/doc/chriskross/11597865.
Do those yellow rings signify fibre (since Steve's photos show yellow stripes)?
