Is Virgin Media shelling out for the disruption/inconvenience it is causing to Lewes? If so, how much and who is getting paid? And does VM pay for the pavement 'fixes' that have to be done to its poorer work?just like to know!

I'm guessing it's similar to if a member of the public does it (driveway for example), if so they would have paid for a Lewes wide license from the highways department.
Virgin will have to cover the repairs for 1 year, then highways/taxpayer cover it after that.

I hate what they have done to the towns roads, and struggle to believe that they are leaving then in such a sorry state. Surely the contract states they must leave things as they were?

I was a bit surprised they used a different colour, would have looked ok if they had matched the pavements.
No they won't have to put it back to how it was, neither would you if you did a driveway or something similar.

Such a shame. I wonder who was responsible for drawing up the original contracts?

I doubt there were any contracts drawn up, service providers have the right to dig up pavements, they just have to provide the relevant notice and have the correct licenses.

We keep getting welcome offers, which we won't take up, so I wonder if it was worth their while, who has signed up ? Many ?

It certainly is but a much higher %age will die due to other sections of the NHS being underfunded because of the cost. more
