Alice Cummings street
Telstra sub-contracter ute locating pit positions. They are clearing the ducts
for NBN use. Did not want me to take photos, but were very friendly and showed me
a sensor used to locate existing cables. A red box at one pit sends a signal along
the cable. By waving the a sensor over the ground further up the street, the signal
is picked up, helping to locate the next pit.
