A BROADBAND provider has responded to complaints from neighbours in Rodbourne about construction workers keeping them awake through the night.

People living in the area are unhappy at bright floodlights, reversing lorries and loud machinery in the area as CityFibre constructs a new £40m network in the town.

CityFibre’s city manager for Swindon, Neil Madle, said: “CityFibre is investing at least £40m to deliver a town-wide full fibre network that will future-proof Swindon’s digital capabilities for decades to come.

"This is a major undertaking, which is why, throughout all builds, we work closely with our build partner and the local council to ensure all works are delivered effectively and efficiently.

"To minimise disruption to traffic and avoid daytime lane closures on the main artery into town, we have been permitted to carry out works at night by Swindon Borough Council.

"The work on Great Western Way took place in a non-residential area which is why we were able to continue working after the 11pm cut-off. We always try to keep disruption to a minimum and want to thank Swindon residents for their patience.”
