BT Roadworks poly duct


[link to this post]
 
So I went onto roadworks today and about 100m form my house I see this.

"Build 2 concrete chamber 1310mm x 610mm x 1265mm deep in Footway,Install 34m of 1 way poly duct in Footway,Install 6m of 1 way poly duct in Carriageway"

and then just next to it
"
Install 9m of 1 way poly duct in Carriageway"

Im all ready on fibre the cabinet is pretty far away though, all my area is fibre enabled as well.

Whats this mean?

Could be the installation for a new cabinet for a bunch of EO lines. It could be a cabinet that is community funded. Could also be nothing to do with FTTC.

Just FYI most BT roadworks are nothing to do with FTTC/P.

The two chambers are obviously going up either side of a road crossing. They won't look like anything, they'll just be covered from above.

If this is for broadband I'd expect to see works involving a core drill into an existing chamber to get at the copper there along with markings on pavement and roadworks to build cabinet.

They may be moving existing network for some reason.

Yeah they may need to move network from one side of the road to the other for example. That'd need a chamber either side of the road and a couple of crossings.

A bunch of reasons. Additional roadworks if there are any will give it away. Where are the roadworks Sir?
