Whilst the County Council has a clear programme of works there is always the risk that 'unknowns' could affect how and when plans come forward. This means expected timescales for a particular locality can change. This is expected given the nature and scale of the civil engineering build programme.
For example, plans could be delayed due to the discovery of insufficient duct space, blocked or collapsed ducts, securing 'wayleaves', approvals to work on the highway, having to cross major barriers like motorways or rivers, planning considerations, the availability of power, backhaul etc. There is always a risk that plans may change at any point during the network build. Timescales reported are only indicative until such time much closer to a completion date that more certainty can be provided.
The County Council does not hold information on when commercial plans are due to go live.
The County Council will continue to keep updating information as it becomes available to us and as the roll out plans evolve. We are also trying to continue to improve how we present the information we do have to the general public. Information is also provided through our Twitter feed and the project newsletters which are available on the Publications page.
