Nothing exciting to report this past week, there was some splicing being done in Pelton and some works in Grange Villa to clear blockages at the base of the poles, some additional poles have gone in and some pole replacement work is scheduled.

A good bit of Grange Villa and High Handenhold is now ready and waiting for CBT's to be fitted to poles.

Still nothing happening on the outlying properties away from the villages. Fingers still crossed our PON gets the green light.

CBTís being installed on poles today in Grange Villa. Joint boxes being installed at Pelton Lane Ends but otherwise quiet this past week or so. Nothing new on the planned roadworks front, maybe waiting a team to arrive from another area.

Quick observation today driving through Grange Villa where CBT's are currently being mounted.

Aerial fibre being strung between telegraph poles, an engineer on the ground with a very long stick with a loop on the top that looked to be attached to the overhead copper cable as a guide, walking from the pole with fibre to the destination pole. To maintain tension on the fibre cable to stop it sagging down there was an engineer up the top of the originating pole.

I know for copper services one way pulleys and thin rope leader with a bit of drag on the reel of copper are used to extend cables between poles and for road crossings.

Bet the looped pole has a fancy OpenReach name too, really interesting to see the deployment process evolve.

Latest roadworks, this information might start to disappear as Durham Council seems to have adopted One.Network on their roadworks page but for now the old system is still accessible and updated. https://durhamvi.symology.net/

28th - 29th September
JCN Pelton lane and Albert street Grange Villa Durham DH2 3LJ - ROAD CLOSURE REQUIRED TO ALLOW CIVILS TEAM TO CLEAR BLOCKAGES IN CARRAIGEWAY. OFF PEAK WORKING

1st - 5th October

R/O 2-4 LOVAINE STREET ON GRETA STREET SOUTH, Pelton Lane Ends - Road Closure to install 15m of 1 way poly duct in Carriageway

I know that to put street works in especially closures requires months of advanced notice so perhaps these dates will move forward once they have been processed by the council - I was of the understanding that the Beamish project was slated to be mostly complete by the end of September.

Certainly seems the case round here that jobs will show on one.network as "Advanced planning", disappear, then come back later as "Planned work about to start".

Quite the update today, I have had a good physical look around and made some notes below, work is ongoing in Pelton and High Handenhold.

This morning High Handenhold was swamped with OR vans and people, I stopped counting at 10 vans.

State of play:

No Place
All properties in No Place now have access to FTTP.

Beamish Village
Station Cottages, Station Road, Woodside, Deneside, Abbots Walk, View Tops,Nicholson's Terrace, Properties on New Road, Urpeth Villas and Urpeth Hill Top all have CBT's and work looks complete, I believe this is live now? Some infill to do closer to the old Miners Cottages and Birchwood Close perhaps.

High Handenhold
Work in progress - South View, Victoria Terrace, Eppleton Terrace, Denton Cottages, Cartmel Terrace all have CBT's mounted. Arthur Street and Sydney Street have been blue roped to base of poles.
Baytree Terrace,Lilac Gardens and High Hold Bungalows are being worked on today - they had already been blue roped. Observed splitters being put in pavement chambers, CBT's will be up shortly.
2 chaps splicing in the Agg Node outside the Fire Station.

Pelton
Work ongoing today on The Parade and in Ivy Way and Fairfield.
Heathmeads, The Wynd, Constance Street, Ernest Street, Properties on Front Street, Pelton Lane, Wheldon Terrace and Lyons Terrace all have CBT's in place and look complete. Brackenbeds, Thorntons Lea and Thorntons close I'm not sure as they are UG fed.

Newfield
Kensington Way (New build estate has had native FTTP from Day 1), Roseberry Villas, Properties on Newfield Road, Newfield Inn, Hares Buildings, Oakdale Terrace all have CBT's and work looks complete. I believe FTTP is available to order.

Pelton Lane Ends
Nothing yet, some duct works have been done and a road closure is in place for October for more work.

Grange Villa
Mostly complete, Front Street, East Street, West Street, Albert Street, Queen Street, Stone Row all have CBT's mounted and work looks complete. Pine Street has CBT's mounted and fibre coiled waiting to be spliced in.

West Pelton
All Properties on Twizell Lane, Plantation View, Eden Hill Farm, Summerfield, Hepburn Gardens and Edenfield all have CBT's mounted and work looks complete. A quick postcode check shows not live yet.

So the vast majority of work has been done, the Exchange has 10 fttc cabinets with 3 of those offering Gfast.

What has not yet been done: Properties down Hammer Square Bank, Cranberry Bog Road, Pockerley Buildings, Riding Farm, Urpeth Forge, Minstrel Farm, Papermill Cottages, hamlet of High Urpeth, Stoney Lane and properties on Blue House Bank all of which are on long lines from Beamish.

I understand why OR have done the rollout the way they have on a cost per premises passed basis but they have yet to address the 2 to 24Mbps customers while upgrading those who already had great connections and that galls a little bit.  :fingers: it gets to us before they move out of the area and call this rollout done.
