Does any one know who/where to request to move an exiting Virgin Media Cabinet installed on the verge of a road ( the cabinet is believed to be Fibre Optics Network). We are constructing a new junction and road and the existing cabinet will restrict the visibility of the ongoing traffic from the new junction.
Yes - this is entirely a matter for the local authority concerned. They have the liaison contacts with all the UK broadband providers to organise this as part of their overall duty for local highway standards and maintenance. They will know who the cabinet belongs to. Just because it appears to be for fibre networking doesn't mean it's a VM cabinet. BT Openreach have at least as many and probably many more such cabinets than VM.

I actually contacted our Virgin Media Framework Manger and his response was I should contact the VM head office as he does not deal with the cabins that does not form a part of our site communication network. The new site is about 1.5 miles away from where the new junction / maintenance access road is to be constructed and our site is not connected to this cabin. I will escalate this matter and advise you the outcome. I also imagine there will be a huge cost associated with the moving of the live cabinet as lots of house might be connected to this specific cabinet. Are there areas where Virgin are still using BT Openreach infrastructure to provide their service.
Zed1 - just out of interest - who is "we" who are constructing a new junction.
Presumably you are not local council as they would not post on here - would they !!
Private developer I assume?
