The Government’s ambition for rapid deployment of gigabit digital infrastructure is set to focus even greater attention on delivery. However, the challenges of planning, wayleaves and streetworks management are still seen by many as one of the main barriers to deployment and progress.
This event is the first of a planned series of Barrier Busting Workshops where subject experts will give attendees the opportunity to discuss, understand and develop best practice in full fibre network construction.
Focusing on streetworks management, the workshop will include expert contributions from David Latham, co-Chair of HAUC England (Highways Authorities & Utilities Committee) as well as Gary Blunt, Project Director at DCMS, and Simon Whitehouse from Axione.
