Overhead Safety Programme

USL work on behalf of Openreach as part of a major safety framework contract, upgrading and maintaining the existing telecommunications network. The main focus of this contract is to ensure the safety and integrity of the network.

This involves the renewal of telegraph poles that have been tested by Openreach and classified as ‘D’ for defective. Nationally, USL renew in excess of 10,000 poles annually for this reason alone, in a variety of locations from the roadside works to some of the most remote terrain in the United Kingdom.

This project runs alongside an existing low wire programme, designed to ensure that at all times Openreach can maintain the height requirements for all of their plant that crosses any carriageway. This is a continual programme that offers it’s own challenges, particularly when carriageways are built or amended as part of a new development.
