Survey Markings


[link to this post]
 
So there has been some activity this week since my cab was installed.

There was BT work planned on Elgin this week and I spotted a very large Openreach van further up the road towards the preceding cab on Monday morning, so either they were installing the fibre or clearing out the route.

Yesterday there was a survey company van parked next to the cab and by the time I came home there were new markings on the pavement:

A red dashed line from the nearest lamppost to the PCP marked LV is clearly the planned Power Route, but why does it go to the PCP? (although there is obviously an onward route to the cab now).

A silver arrow around the corner on the way back towards the preceding cab marked 'BT H/S'. probably something to do with the fibre, but what does 'H/S' mean?

LV is low voltage. It might not be the planned power route but an existing power route marked up for safe digging when they trench the new duct between the PCP and fibre cabinet.

Not sure about H/S though?

High Speed?

Probably misread by the OP though. Around here they had L/V and H/V marked down.

It could be the power route though as 230v is Low Voltage.

Any High Voltage will likely be 11kv and certainly needs clearance and not attacking with one of Openreach's new shovels.

No shovelling left to do except for an LV feed. They have already put the route in between the PCP and the cab. The silver H/S is adjacent to a BT pavement lid around the corner but nowhere near the LV marking.
