We've just had two 20mm green conduits laid side by side in a 400mm deep trench from a suitable location on the roadside to our new home. One is intended for use by Chorus for the copper service, while the other would be used for UFB service (we're in a UFF serviced area) once this becomes available in the next few months.

Unfortunately I note that the UFF site says "All you need to do is lay a white 20mm plastic duct in the trench and leave a marker at the end, or leave the end of duct exposed." but the electrician has laid a second green duct despite me telling them one white and one green. Do you think this will become an issue when we go to connect?

You'll be ok, it doesn't matter the colour of the conduit.

You're only risk is that you've built to the wrong boundary (unless you checked with UFF first)?

I thought that green was the colour code for telecommunications.

Orange = electricity.
Yellow = gas.
Blue = water.

Great :) Yes, I gave them a call about where to build to and they agreed aiming for the existing Chorus network attachment point would be best given the time-frame until UFB availability in the area and that the design plans still haven't been finalised.

That's what I understood too, but the UFF deployment guidelines on their website stipulate white conduit. Perhaps that's so it contrasts against any Chorus provisioned conduit... who knows!

Thanks guys, I can now sleep easy :)
