BDUK 2 funding for Reading and Wokingham is on hold until the issue is sorted and contracts can be awarded.


*The* issue?

Re: Cabinet 30 on Woodley Exchange

Yeah, those are the ones just opposite us for another couple of months before the whole site compound moves further up.

Thanks for the info everyone. I'll see what I can do to convince someone to pay for the upgraded cabinet!

In reply to a post by ccxo:
Reading and Wokingham - Assuming contracts can be awarded, there will be solutions providing a combination of FTTC, fixed wireless and a small amount of FTTP. If BDUK‘s EU State Aid authorisation can be completed later this year, then implementation is still expected to be completed before the end of 2017. The Call Flow proposals provide coverage for 1,550 premises in Reading and 3,250 premises in Wokingham if contracts are awarded.


I guess what I meant to ask is are there any further details of whatever this issue is that prevented the contracts for Reading and Wokingham having been awarded at the same time as West Berks and RBWM?

'it was not possible to get these contracts authorised under the EU State Aid requirement before the deadline of 30th June 2015.'

That was from the press release on the 3rd July 2015 on the superfast Berkshire site.

Still as clear as mud... essentially the reasons why these are delayed remain a mystery other than it somehow involves paperwork?

It will likely be either a missed deadline with the paperwork or possibly even a error with it, the project will award the contract, just at a later date.

In terms of rollout it will just be a few months later- work normally slows towards the end of the year, so their is not that much of a delay.

The project has talked about further contracts with funding to cover the areas that are missed by the call flow contracts.

Thaks for the clarification, luckily I am no longer living in a location thats waiting on 'superfast berkshire' who seem to be anything but fast at delivering results...

In somewhat related new anyone with an EO line in Wokingham town centre may be pleased to hear that P88 which had previously been targetted for 31st March 2015 looks to be near enough on track for the latest target of 30th September as roadworks.org advised the following work is planned to erect a new PCP outside the exchange between the 19th and 25th September... assuming BT has the ability to go from build completed to RFS in 3 working days..


Highway Authority: Wokingham Borough Council
Location: OUTSIDE 14 POST OFFICE ON, BROAD STREET
Description: Erect/Renew 1 PCP cabinet and base (600mm x 300mm x 1000mm),Install 2m of 7 poly ducts in Footway
Permit status: Granted
Works ref: BC005WP00400500189993102
Current status: Planned work about to start
Work info last updated: 00:00 on 17/09/2015
Last updated on roadworks.org: 15:01 on 18/09/2015
Data source: BT


Although in a clasic example of why we could learn from mainland europe in terms of co-ordinated scheduling street works it appears BT's contractors will be lucky if their work is not impacted South East waters contractors who plan a "perm reinstate" of what appears to be near enough the same strech of footway between the 22nd and 24th of September:

Highway Authority: Wokingham Borough Council
Location: POST OFFICE, 16, BROAD STREET, WOKINGHAM, BERKSHIRE, RG40 1AA
Description: To perm reinstate
Permit status: Granted
Works ref: EB005-13029801
Current status: Planned work about to start
Work info last updated: 00:00 on 15/09/2015
Last updated on roadworks.org: 15:01 on 18/09/2015
Data source: South East Water

Re: Exchange only lines in Wargrave


[re: MrSaffron] [link to this post]
 
I'm just back from holiday and there is no sign of the new cabinet at the junction of Station Road and Loddon Drive. Can anyone please throw any light on what the plan is together with any idea of timing?

Thanks, I'd be grateful for any info that you can unearth. I've looked at the superfastberkshire site which is saying Sep 30, 2015 for XO in our post code so if there is a slippage they don't seem to be aware.
