Cellphone service now expected before Christmas

A harsh winter has meant conditions at the site of the new cell tower in Channel Road have caused site preparation and the construction of the tower to be delayed. Engineers are checking the site regularly and work will begin again as soon as conditions improve.
 
The tower was originally scheduled to be commissioned in late May and the launch was then deferred until August because of the condition of the access road to the site, however Vodafone are now targeting later this year for the tower to go "live".
