From Northamptonshire Highways…
John Henry Group, on behalf of Gigaclear, have requested a number of closures to allow for the installation of a new telecommunications network.
The project in the area will commence on the 7th January 2019 and is expected to be completed by the 3rd April 2019. As you will appreciate there has already been some works taking place using traffic signals within the area and the closures will commence when signed on site giving a minimum of 10 working days’ notice.
With Rectory Lane, Holcot residents will have access although they will need to wait to be escorted through the works.
Plans showing the closures and diversions can be viewed below:-

On Monday, Lisa (our clerk) met with Gigaclear managers to understand the basics of their installation in the Parish. Her notes are here.
In addition, Gigaclear have provided a spreadsheet of roadworks, with the actual closures, traffic lights etc being shown on roadworks.org in the normal way.
Glynn from Gigaclear is expected to attend November’s meeting of the Parish Council.
This is a message from Sarah Naylor of Superfast Northamptonshire at NCC. We are due to have Ultrafast broadband by the end of the year, with work starting shortly.
Installing the network and making good afterwards
This will involve temporarily digging up pavements and roads to enable Gigaclear to lay full fibre cabling underground and also to install connection points outside the boundary of every property. All residents and businesses will be informed as soon as their connection is ready and they can take full advantage of the ultrafast broadband speeds available if they wish to place an order for services.
All works, which may cause disruption on the highway or pavements in order to complete the fibre installation, will be reinstated to Highways Authorities and Utilities Committee standards.
Keeping you informed
Gigaclear will provide channels of communication to help answer questions. They are also happy to attend a parish meeting to explain more about the rollout.
