May 2019 Update
Routes 3 and 5 – Stainton Cross, Stainton Ford
Much of the route digging, householder digging of ducting across gardens and house kits are now installed on this route. We are now waiting for some road crossings, which need to be done by B4RN contractors. These are happening, with one near the ford done recently, see below.
Routes 1 & 2, Shyreakes, Millbridge and Halfpenny
All wayleaves for these routes have now been submitted to B4RN so it’s
now time to start digging the ducting across your gardens/land from the
perimeter to your property.
Much of this has already happened on routes 3 and 5, through the village, where people organised themselves into groups,able to help implement the digging. We also have the contact details of a number of contractors
that can help you dig ducting across your land and install the house kits. Speak to one of the B4ST steering group for more information.
Route 4 – Barrows Green… We are on our way!
Work continues on obtaining wayleaves for this area of the project and we are nearly there!
Please continue to sign up for the Gigabit Voucher Scheme if you are in this area of the parish and we will be contacting you again shortly when the exact route for digging is finalised.
