Normally the installation of fibre cables is disruptive and expensive, it involves digging trenches which result in road closures and takes a long time therefore increasing costs.
However there is now a solution to this, Micro Trenching is a new technology which uses a diamond blade to cut a narrow (24-30mm) trench into the ground. The machine also installs the microducts into the trench behind the blade as it cuts, speeding up the process.
The micro trench is typically closed on the same day as it was cut and is safe for traffic to pass over meaning less road closures. Once the installation is complete the trench is closed using a specialist backfill injection method and then sealed.
