Similar situation to my village. 1.5 miles from an enabled cabinet, so too far for SFBB. Via BDUK we are getting a new cabinet in the village and copper rearrangement of the D sides to remove us from the existing cabinet. Current is 3x100 pair cables from the enabled PCP, one cable is a lead sheathed type for half its length. Not sure yet if we will get a brand new E side feed to the cabinet, but wiring within the village to the DPs will also need to be changed as new cabinet will be in centre of village and currently D sides all come from one end.
Only the first 400yds of duct from the existing cabinet was fitted with access chambers. I wasn't even sure it was ducted for rest of run as no chambers, but in the last few months 8 new access chambers have been built. Duct work was heavily blocked with silt. In one section 8 blockages, and the other 0.5 mile had 17!
Fibre microduct is now installed, fibre yet to be blown though. Cabinet location had also to be changed due to NIMBYs. It hasn't been confirmed yet if we are getting a PCP and FTTC or a onesie/combined.
The roadworks showed up on the web - eventhough the road is only a C (so minor) category one.
So your cable could be ducted, don't forget if its in verge, grass/vegetation may be covering the chamber lids - also an issue here. The records were also so poor, the contractors had to use a CAT cable scanner (no other services run down the road to the next village), paper plans and measuring wheel, to find the duct in the verge.
