@puggy, are you able to post a few pics of your drive/section or an overhead pic?
@DarthKermit, have attached some images, you can see the drop point to the left of the property, the house is all of about 7m away. As you can see the drive is in no condition to cut and no contractors are happy to replace the drive as the ground under it all is unstable, you can see to the left a product that is in the ground to stop that side moving as we park boats and trailers on the grass.
As mentioned before the conduit goes under the drive already and I have been keen on using that but they say this is not an option as they are not 100% sure where it terminates under the house. They have pushed a second(yellow plastic rod) rod through it and while the house is only 7m away they pushed 10m or more through and could not find the end, so this is why it is not an option.
As for the fence once inside the property you can see the old fence built in 1978 and around behind the garage they cannot dig into the ground as it has too many tree roots, so they just string it across the gaps and if we replace the fence then just staple it to the new fence I have been told.
I have not managed to hear from anyone at Chorus, trust me I have tried calling many times, I have had over 10 teams sometimes 3 people at a time come out and spend the day at the property and their boss came out once to have a look. Note these are all contractors, not Chorus themselves and they have all suggested move the drop point but at the beginning of the week Chorus cancelled the install for the 3rd time saying it could only be fence mounted, Chorus do not allow drop point moves and if the dog either side of the fence chews the cable it would only be fixed at my expense so now this has me really worried and frustrated as they seem to just be taking the easy option of no digging, not using any conduit, just bang to the fence right around the property and wipe their hands clean when it is done and make it my issue for a terrible install.
So back to my original question, who pays if I do allow this crazy way of install to happen? Chorus says me, so I am not happy to do a half-baked install.
