As per there is a silly comment on there ie

"The cabinet is well away from the road - no need for traffic control at all...

Typical jobsworth BT Open Reach muppets "

So he thinks OR like to pay out £000's for traffic control just for the fun of it !

And so far from the road that a car has taken it out ! The poor late cab was just sitting there humming away RIP

these comments are my own and in no way represent any company that i may or may not be linked too.

If you look at the right-hand column of the page, the "Most Popular" stuff.

It seems a good place to keep away from. May also explain the comment from someone thinking somebody had died there.

I wonder if the car driver's insurance is going to have to cough up for the replacement cabinet!

Why might the road need digging up though Bert? Assuming the cables to a PCP across the road need replacing, or similarly a power cable, shouldn't those be safely in ducting?

The indispensable man or woman passes from the scene, and what happens next is more or less the same thing as was happening before.

The ducting looked slightly damaged in some of the photos so might be a need for a dig to repair this

As for the bill - then yes will be an expensive claim if they are actually insured.

Wonder what the actual replacement costs will be - what's the going rate for an FTTC cabinet? Maybe similar cost to if the driver had written off someone's shiny new BMW?

The concrete base will need to be repaired/ replaced and cosequently the ducts may have to be dug up and replaced

Around 20k to 25k mark but labour will be a big variable and if power was damaged will be time constrained by power people too

Add to that the small amount of compensation each user gets for every day of service lost! 40 days for 100 users at maybe £3/day and there is another £12000 ...

BT will have had staff out to make it safe, managing the replacement process, cost recovery team (a friend works in one of the BT teams), traffic control application/licence ... it soon mounts up! And where BT can recover their costs dues to third party negligence, they will.
