When I arrived back from Newcastle on Tuesday evening I found gangs of men with big machines frantically making slots in the road. Apparently the optic fibre cables we chose not to have will arrive soon.
More interestingly it will live in slots in the roads about five centimetres below the surface of the street. What happens when men with diggers arrive to do something to the electricity or water supplies? I expect we will find out sometime soon.
This morning, after working in the garden I walked to the next street to see how the slots all joined up. I found this control box, with wires of many colors.
More colours than I thought wires came in, actually.
