Well they did not try much for this one.
Physically, there is plenty of space alongside the PCP; and there is mains power at the street signs in the immediate vicinity because of it being a "T" junction etc.
The present FTTC location is such that it reduces driver's visibility at an awkward junction, particularly with two adjacent Primary School crossings - 5 times per day, 190 days per year = 950 times per year, and because of the lack of school parking, the vertical of the "T" has a lot of parent & pupil pedestrians, no footpath/s, walking on the "blindest/most hidden" part of the vertical, both to access the school, beyond/above the "T" horizontal. All compounded by being around a "blind summit" and the "blind corner", twice on each excursion, eg arriving to take a child in to the school, followed by the parent/guardian returning along the same route to the parked car.
Where this FTTC is located the Link Ducts and that short bit of footpath trenching first head in the opposite direction to the PCP, by about 5 Metres, before "turning about - About Turn" in the U-G chamber to pass the same FTTC but now in the old main ducting, to head under the minor road to the PCP, about 40 Metres.
So the Link Cables are about 40 Metres longer than they could have been.
It is a good or bad example, of where to site or not site an FTTC, whilst also degrading the broadband service slightly by the extra length.
