Disaster planning: how much to repair a cut fibre?
We have some major building works on site over the next year, and in the half term a contractor will be digging a trench directly over the path of one of our underground fibre ducts. I believe the intersection point is currently beneath tarmac.
I have been asked by Facilities to give an estimate of how much it would cost to repair said fibre if the contractors screwed up and dug through it, so that they know what sort of financial penalty to specify in the contract.
I have given them the impression it would be pretty damned expensive. Anyone have a close-ish idea of what sort of figure we'd be talking about?
