Locate markings in Stratford

Fibre to the Home installs are happening throughout the winter months, and outside you may see us working in your neighbourhood on the municipal right-of-ways. We are completing pre-engineering work throughout the City of Stratford, to expedite the construction process once spring comes.

What is pre-engineering?
Pre-engineering can involve any or all of the following activities: Locate markers (the yellow, pink, red, blue, green spray paint and/or flags you see on the ground), mapping, taking measurements.

What’s the purpose of pre-engineering?
Completing this work now will assist us and provide us with more of a jump-start once construction season arrives.

What streets are you working on?
We are working throughout the City of Stratford. You are likely to see us in several neighbourhoods over the next couple of weeks.

What type of equipment is involved in pre-engineering work?
You are likely to see us taking measurements, photos, locating utilities and using spray paint marks and flags to identify them.

What should I do if I see you working near my property or street?
Our pre-engineering work should not affect your property. We do encourage you to visit our Stratford office at 587 Huron Street, Unit 3 for more information about Wightman Fibre to the Home. 

It’s important that residents interested in Fibre to the Home sign up — we don’t want to miss your address. Installs are happening now. Signing up for Fibre will get your name and address on our list!

You’re likely to see our crews working across our 2018 construction area over the next couple of weeks, including the neighbourhoods of and around Hibernia Street, Huron Street, Glastonbury Crescent, Greenwood Drive, Mornington, Glendon Road, Delamere, and William Street.

Did you know that we use directional boring (also called directional drilling) as the main method for burying our Fibre to the Home infrastructure? This machine is designed for minimal impact to surfaces, and is one of the key components to the construction process.

First step, the drill creates an underground bore path. Second step, the drill literally pulls our conduit back through the underground path (our conduit is the hollow piping you see on those huge reels around town). Third step, our Fibre to the Home lines get blown through the conduit!

As our main Fibre to the Home infrastructure is buried, we’re able to bury Fibre to each property that has signed up for service. Here is the video of our drop conduit machine in case you missed it from a previous post.

September 27, 2018

Our crews are currently working in the neighbourhood of Kemp Crescent and Simpson Court, installing our facilities on Municipal property.

As mentioned last week, we use the hydrovac method to vacuum dirt out of the area where we need to work, which helps to minimize surface digging and keep our construction as clean as possible (that’s the purpose of the large trucks with the cylinder-shaped body).

After preparing the ground, our horizontal directional drill installs our conduit underground on Municipal property, and then we place fibre into the conduit. After our fibre is in the conduit, we connect (splice) our mainline fibre.

Finally, we’re able to bury fibre from the curb to the exterior of all residences that have signed up for service. This is why it’s crucial that if you want Fibre to the Home, you contact us to let us know, as we will need your permission to bring fibre from the curb to your home. As you’ve likely noticed, we tend to move through neighbourhoods quite quickly!

Please don’t delay — contact us in whatever way is most convenient for you, and we’ll give you the details required to get Fibre to the Home. Installs have already started, and if you want your home to be included, you need to contact us to get your address on our list:

Our crews are working along Mornington Street, as well as in the neighbourhood of Graff Avenue and Kemp Crescent. Over the next several days, our work will be moving down to the neighbourhoods around Glendon Road and Dawson Street.

So what are we doing when you see us working on and around the sidewalks in these areas? We are installing our facilities on Municipal property. We use the hydrovac method to vacuum dirt out of the area where we need to work, which helps to minimize surface digging and keep our construction as clean as possible. Our horizontal directional drill installs our conduit underground on Municipal property, and then we place fibre into the conduit.

Part of the process of bringing Fibre directly to homes involves us installing a drop conduit (hollow piping) through which we’re able to bring Fibre directly to homes!

As technology continues to evolve, new methods of burying conduit do, too! Check out this video of our contract crew installing a drop conduit on a property in Stratford. Not only is it small (and therefore minimally invasive)
