Commencement of Survey Work in County Monaghan for National Broadband Plan
Surveying and design works for the National Broadband Plan (NBP) rollout gets underway in Monaghan this week. National Broadband Ireland (NBI) are the company undertaking the fibre network roll-out to enable high speed internet connectivity for 537,000 premises across the country.
NBI would like the public to know that contractors will be on the ground, both inspecting and recording pictures of infrastructure such as poles, cables and underground ducts. The teams have been fully trained in physical distancing practices, hygiene, appropriate use of personal protective equipment and how to engage with the public in a safe manner – if or when required.
In Monaghan, the initial surveys will commence in the following areas: Cornacassa, Cortolvin, Rooskey, Smithborough, Ballybay, Ballinode, Stranooden, Glaslough. This is the first phase of the NBP as the surveys will enable network designs for each area, for the laying of the new high-speed fibre broadband in phase two.
4Site are the contracting company commencing this work and they will have vehicles and signage with both their own, and NBI logos. Employees will also wear hard hats and high visibility vests featuring the NBI logo. All contractors will also carry official ID cards & essential worker letters.
