READERS of the Gazette in Euroa may have noticed that nbn network is currently being rolled out in the area.
Large trucks carrying huge rolls of cabling and lots of contractors have been busy setting up and laying down new and upgraded infrastructure for what John Simon, nbn’s, the chief customer officer describes as, “the biggest transformation to Australia’s telecommunications industry to ever occur”.
Mr Simon goes on to explain that this development is, “the most significant network upgrade ever seen in such a short period of time and represents a significant change for consumers as they make the move to the new service”.
The nbn network contractors have been installing cable through existing underground pipes and on existing overhead power poles throughout the week.
The shire on their wesite explains that, “contractors may also dig or drill under on public property (for example under footpaths or on nature strips) and install pits, similar to the telecommunication pits already in the area”.
Most of the work in this phase of the upgrade seems to have been completed but residents should be aware that, there may be there may be further temporary footpath and road closures, and temporary noise and dust associated with the work.
