Not what C/W is, unless it's something along the lines of Conjunction With?

I've still no activation date for my cab, despite the exchange now being active, and as far as I can tell, all work being completed on the DSLAM (Power installed, tie cables done, etc), the only thing I can think of is that perhaps the feeder cable can't get through because of a blockage, but if that's the case, I'm not sure why they would have put the tie cables in..

Might send off an email to Ian Livingston's office and see if I can get an estimate or a reason from them smile

Footway ( a box on the footpath)

c/w corner/with

The numbers are northings and eastings, an accurate description of the location.

Basically, blocked ducts, stopping the blown fibre tubes being pulled in, prior to the fibre feed to the DSLAM or DSLAM's being fed. Contractors go to site, clear the blockages allowing work to progress.

F/W - footway box
O/S - outside
C/W - carriageway box

Saves a lot of typing, but pretty incomprehensible for most readers.

654133,294095 - the easting and northing of a location, based on the Ordnance Survey grid

What he said except FW is pavement, footway. Rather than a box.CW is in the road, carriageway rather than a box.

They are digging out blocked ducts.

FYI the info on ELGIN / Roadworks.org are not planning notes.

The info is either for current or planned streetworks (roadworks) which have either had or do not require planning (most common occurrence).

The works described may be linked to FTTC works or just general Openreach fault works.

You can setup warnings from ELGIN so that it emails you details on works based on the criteria you set out. You can simply map an area around a BT cabinet (if you watching for FTTC works) and whenever works are plotted in that area you will receive an email with the info. Saves you having to keep checking it to find out what's happening.

Just to be pedantic. Carriageway boxes are not always in the road, it refers to the type of box, not it's positioning. JRC11 etc, etc.

Yup, I know that, it's just a turn of phase smile

Given that they're referring to clearing ducting, it's not hard to work out which are FTTC related and which aren't.

I'm not 100% sure which route the fibre is taking to get to the DSLAM, but I suspect the delay in activating the cabinet is down to the two works mentioned in the original post.

I was just curious about the shorthand - a 100% bulletproof legally clear response isn't required wink
