Expansion of the Virgin Media cable network in Bradley Stoke has continued over the past few months, with pavements being dug up and new street cabinets installed in Wheatfield Drive and Dewfalls Drive.
Work in the ‘herbs’ area of south Bradley Stoke appears to be drawing to a close, while the final electrical connections appear to be being made to new street cabinets on Brook Way that will serve Oaktree Crescent and Stanshaws Close.
Information available on the roadworks.org website suggests that Kemperleye Way will be the next area to be visited by the contractors and their diggers.
Virgin Media is yet to officially confirm that any work is taking place in Bradley Stoke or when the system will start to go live.
