New Fibre Installation

New Fibre Installation

City West Cable and Telephone Corp. plans to install fiber optic cabling, for Internet purposes, to all residential homes in the Lax Kw' Alaams community. The project involves the installation of approximately 9.2 km of aerial fiber optic cable from the tip of Victoria Street in the south of the community, to the tip of Shakes Street in the north of the community.

The cable is to be attached to existing support structures such as utility/telephone poles that parallel existing roadways. Support structures may require structural improvements to support cable attachments.
