Waiting for Council Approval for dig, which I am surprised at as its private property. OR advised takes about 5 days and will advise with a date further.

But not the pavement/roadway the other side of the boundary line.

I'm not surprised as any work now done on owners premises needs the approval by Building Regulations 2012 granted by your local council and then inspected after the work has been completed.

We had a new Oil burner and Oil tank installed the contractor had to follow the local Council guide lines to the letter then only after an inspection from the Council it was passed with a certificate

I am unsure if they are going beyond the boundary, I hope so as the first engineer was getting 67 at the first underground junction box which implies the cable from there to my jointing post where he was getting 53 is also suspect.

If you're in an area that's covered by it you should be able to find it on https://roadworks.org

I can assure that this work won't need approval from the local council for your section along with an inspection afterwards, it'll be work on the public pavement and/or carriageway to reach the property boundary.

Yes I have been watching that site for updates, it how I found out the date for my water meter. Maybe they are planning to replace the street cable as well, as one engineer tested in the first junction box before my property and got 67 on his equipment then 53 on the jointing post at the boundary of my property then 40 inside my house. So maybe they are replacing street cable after all, hope so.

This isn't for all work. Obviously screwups with oil burners and tanks can result in mushroom clouds so regulations there are fair enough, but for telecomms work no such requirements. If these were the case Virgin Media would need permission for each and every install that involved digging.

I expect they will - cheaper for them just to leave it there than dispose of it, unless they pull it after the new cables run in and connected.

Looks like the old duct stops short of the house, I wonder if there's a join there - looks like something covering the end of the duct.

It's more than I had imagined also. That's quite a long run from your property to the pavement.
are they leaving the old duct in place ?
My guess would be that OpenReach will come next, pull through his new cable in the new duct and connect it. Then the contractors will return and remove the old ducting. His line will still be active in the old duct while today's work was being carried out. Will be interesting to see if the works affected the circuit at all.

Smaller piece of duct for about 6 inches then DW6 goes straight into the earth for about another 6 inches then into a metal pipe under the path which my dad had put in for the cable.

Not sure if the old duct will be removed after new cable run. Also on roadworks.org there is a works notice for 2m poly duct under the footway outside my boundary so looks like that cable is also being replaced from underground chamber to jointing post on my property.
