Gigaclear have been awarded the contract to provide superfast broadband to Abbots Leigh and several other local rural communities.
Gigaclear's contractor Avonline will be laying fibre optic cables down all the roads in Abbots Leigh and will be contacting householders to see if they want to sign up. They have a number of teams working on this. The first team has started by getting the cable across the Suspension bridge and and are now heading along the A369 through Abbots Leigh and on towards Portbury, which they hope to reach after about 4 months.
Other teams will install the cables in the side roads. One team has already finished Dennyview Road and will probably move on to Church Road. Once a new distribution box has been installed and connected opposite Sandy Lane it will be able to start connecting up.
There are road closure orders for Harris Lane and Sandy Lane. Details will be published here as soon as they are available.
