Hi.

Who should I report this issue to; Council or Chorus? Looks like fibre cable across the footpath.

Good question, and thank you. As someone who doesn't look where they're walking this would have tripped me up!

Man the fibre network install gets dodgier by the day. In India the fibre is literally installed using trees as the poles. Will be seeing photos of that here next.

Looks like they tried to route it in the join and it's lifted up.

They should have cut the paving, laid it, sealed it, but they also need to have kept it deep in tyhe grass as it look like the paving has been edged to stop grass growing over it. Next time its edged its cut. Isn't there a 200mm or 300mm rule on this?

Yes apparently, it's 200mm.....but don't tell that to the installer that did a propertly I heard about at about 2mm - I think they missed some 00's.  It was dug up when a fence was removed

Looks like that's outside boundary, in which case it would need to be more than 200.

 

@kiwiharry please DM us the address and we will get someone on it

How deep are they supposed to be cut into the Concrete?
I'm sure mine is less than 50mm deep? - maybe as little as 10mm where it bends off the concrete into the ground.
(Also in Mt wellington)

ahh ok, so no need to worry that install that is currently there is fine, just leave it flapping in the wind!
