A286 roadworks delayed

I heard earlier today that the A286 resurfacing has been put back from the planned start next Monday 29 September by two weeks. BT very recently notified SCC that they want to cable the A286 for high speed broadband – this has the backing of the Leader – so they will be going in on Monday for two weeks with surfacing to follow. I understand they plan to use existing ducts but are likely to need to dig down where they encounter obstructions, so it is best they go in ahead of us and in advance of the five year embargo on excavation for planned works once the new surface is in. The electronic signs will be changed to read ‘Road closed for BT works’ or similar.
