OK, the base was installed last week, and yesterday the actual green cabinet was installed!
The roadworks website describes this work as ' Install 4m of 2 poly ducts in Verge,Provide, Renew or Recover 1 DSLAM street cabinet and base'
There are further road works taking place a few hundred metres down the road, but isn't clear if they are related. The roadworks web site does not have any information about these second roadworks.
Still no idea how long it will be before they are accepting orders.
My current landline/broadband contract ends in late August, so seems like an ideal opportunity to upgrade to fast fibre.
