Immediate Important Information
This Thursday (21st Jan) work at the Village Hall crossroads will commence to connect the fibre currently above ground on either side of junction. Valley View will remain open but it would be helpful if village traffic could use alternative routes. A trench will run across the road and onwards in the verge on Village Hall side.
School and Pre school access times have been notified to the the Project Manager. The civils (roadworks and trenching) team will not close the road or car park entrance during morning drop off period up to 9AM. The same applies at pre school collection time however staff departures may require a steel plate to be positioned over the trench.
We understand that at other times the civils work on the road and entrance is likely to reduce road width to single lane and it will require a steel plate to allow passage. Thus it would help the civils team if villagers can access their destination via alternative routes through the village.
Good progress has been made and civils are on schedule according to the Gigaclear PM. Fields Road towards the A429 should complete next week as will the leg out past Pinkwell. The work on The Whiiteway will build to just past the Airfield before the same team returns to run down into Rendcomb.
Future activity will then focus on the link between Rendcomb and Colesbourne. Once this is complete we can expect Cabinet FS03 at Chedworth Village Hall to go live. Those with a pot outside could then receive Gigaclear service if they have a house connection in place.
Once FS03 is live the teams will focus on working from the Village Hall into the village. At the moment one team is planned although if disruption is accepted by villagers additional teams could be assigned. Net net, if we cooperate and take alternative routes without complaining then we get it sooner.
More details will follow in 2 weeks time.
Connection to your property
to look out for a white square sprayed on the verge outside their property. This is the selected position for their connection pot. Typically it is identified 2-3 days before the dig team reach the property. If you require a different location you need to contact the team leader to discuss alternative location relative to your intended entry point into your building. However it must remain on the County Highway verge. Householders who are not in residence most weekdays will need to communicate their preferred pot location if they do not want the default position by the front door access path or gateway to be applied in their absence.
For clarity Fossebridge is not in the current phase phase.
