Super Fast Broadband update

There have unfortunately been further delays in providing the super fast service to the part of Valley road between Scudders Hill and the Fawkham Primary School.  The area also includes Scudders Hill and part of Three Gates Road.

BT has encountered unforeseen issues with the ductwork between the existing cabinet at the top of Castle Hill and the proposed cabinet at the Valley Road / Scudders Hill junction.   This needs  quite substantial roadworks in the locality.   Unfortunately, because of restrictions that have been placed on their works (the KCC highways has to allow for other roadworks required in the surrounding area and keep enough of the highway network open so people can move about as normally as possible) they do not yet have the remaining work scheduled until April.  Realistically the super fast broadband should be completed by Summer 2018.
