Coil of yellow hose pipe diameter stuff? If so then yes duct clearance.

There are those that say Openreach should be more pro-active at clearing ducts but the problem is on some ducts you clear it one week and it will be blocked the next. There are even some in Cornwall that are tidal.

If the blockage is under a junction and they need to dig down to clear it, this can also lead to delays as it is not an emergency and a council may only give roadworks permission a long way into the future.

I do wonder though. Our duct was blocked which delayed fibre laying. Yet the duct was blocked only at a spot where the manhole covers had collapsed. The collapse was dangerous (you could put your foot into the hole) on an unlit road in a village. Reported 6 months ahead and they still left it until they started laying for 3 cabs in the village - then suddenly 'discovered it' and delayed the work for that cabinet by 3 months...

Perhaps one hand doesn't know what the other had is doing....

We had an Openreach team turn up to pull fibre through ducts that did not exist on 2 occasions for FTTP installs. And they have surveyed each install in our close separately and added ducting as required for each install rather than looking at the 16 houses an a whole and working on how to duct them all. Definitely room for much improvement and stopping wasting money.

After many false alerts via followthatpage (small text changes triggering the alert) FTTC has finally landed laugh

So about 5 months from growing a cabinet to it becoming available to order.
