Contractors working on behalf of Virgin Media have started to install new infrastructure in Firsdown. The timetable of work is below. Work takes place in approximately 100 yard sections along the pavement on one side of the road, before continuing on the opposite side. Each 100-yard section takes approximately 3 days. Day 1 – diamond saw cutting of pavement surface, day 2 – excavation of a trench, duct install, and backfill, day 3 – reinstatement of tarmac surface.
Inevitably there will be dust and noise associated with these works. Access to driveways will be maintained with bridging plates across uncompleted work. Residents are asked to park their cars clear of the work sections by 0800 each morning.
