Shared street Connection

I shall try and make this as understandable as possible.
I have just had a new driveway laid at the expense of my landlord,i am under no circumstances to allow virgin to dig up any part of it due to it being not just basic concrete and i understand this,can i have the cable run from the street cover which is a joint one for me and next door have a cable run back up through the pavement and then across the wall so no damage is done ?

also if my next door neighbour signs up and has a box fitted to the outside wall can a cable be run from that or do i need my own?Hopefully as im not sure of the technical terms for the box on the pavement you guys get what i mean

Re: Shared street Connection

It can be clipped along a wall rather than under a driveway if thats an option

Re: Shared street Connection

Too late now if the drive is laid, but it would have been good to put in a conduit underneath.

Re: Shared street Connection

would have but up until today ive not been sure on funds and the wife refused to agree to anything up until she was certain the money would be there to upgrade,im assuming they can run the cable along the wall,my only real query is with how they bring the cable out from the little cover on the pavement,seriously more than my lifes worth disturbing the new resin drive way

Re: Shared street Connection

Maybe better if you put a photo on of the cover position.

Re: Shared street Connection

Are you saying that there is a single pavement Tee for both houses? If so, it looks as if you'll share one cable. If the routing is better via your neighbour's house, is he amenable to having it done that way? One option may be for the cable to be run to an omni box fitted to your neighbour's house where the cable is split with one leg being run along walls to your house.

Re: Shared street Connection

You can fit more than one cable down a single tee, unlikely the OP will share a cable
