First steps involved negotiating with B4RN, forming a project team and starting to plan how to build the network. Key players were
Duncan Hamlett (who heads up the network build operation), David Ellwood (one of our legal experts involved in obtaining wayleaves)
and Chris Benson who knows the land and landowners.
Work soon got started in cooperation with local farmers bringing the network from Cowan Bridge to Gowrey (the start of the Casterton section) and involved surveying
with ground penetrating radar, test moling and laying the first lengths of core duct.
