There will always be some lag in updates, but the only one that can be relatively certain is if they flip into the live state.

The workers are often not always aware of other issues or snags, so while their work will be done, there may be more to do, so don't bet on the next couple of weeks for it to be live - it might be, it might not.

I can see the following work being done in the area of that postcode:

Date: 3 Sep - 7 Sep
Location: IN FOOTWAY OPPOSITE RECTORY COTTAGE ON, MERE LANE...
Description: Build 1 concrete chamber 915mm x 445mm x 965mm deep in Footway,Install 2m of 1 way poly duct in Foo...

Location: (PCP20) OUTSIDE TELEPHONE EXCHANGE, CHURCH STREET...
Description: Erect/Renew 1 PCP cabinet and base (600mm x 300mm x 1000mm),Install 13m of 5 poly ducts in Verge,Ins...

So I can see that they are installing the cabinet and installing 2 lots of 2m of fibre to it.
So I would say its possibly at the Build or Connect Stage, so possibly a few Months left to go, but don't quote me on that.

Oh, im already aware of that site, I just wondered if there was anywhere which lets you only show BT works in plain text. Did you just format the listings yourself in the post or is there a setting for it? Thanks

I did it myself.

I also have written my own road works app, which displays a little more info.
