Utility Corridor

There is a major emphasis of the Government of India to establish common service ducts and utility corridors in all new city and highway road projects.

Utilities are well positioned to play a complementary role in national fiber development, capitalizing on their existing infrastructure.  

Supporting co-investment strategies with utilities can help to lower costs and share risks. For instance, a power utility’s tower infrastructure deployed for core services is ideal for fiber deployments. Globally, there have been cases of sewage systems being used for fiber roll-out. Separate ducts are being laid alongside the water pipelines, helping reduce the expenditure. 

Initiatives to standardize deployments: 

  • Construct utility corridors in new roads and infrastructure so that all utilities (including gas, water and fiber) are laid together, leading to reduced effort, time and cost of RoW 
  • The ‘common duct policy’ for which the pilots are being conducted, is a step in the right direction and would help reduce operational costs by eliminating the need for frequent digging up of roads 
  • Adopt ‘Call Before You Dig’/’Dig Safe’ policy which should encourage notifying all concerned utilities before the digging process begins, to prevent any damages or fiber cuts 
  • Ensure the utility corridors and duct dimensions have the capacity to accommodate high count optic fiber 
  • Encourage utility providers to create provisions for fiber duct in the utility corridor being planned. 
  • Amend building codes to include fiber along with water, electricity, and gas pipelines 
  • Ensure a RoW nodal agency for all utilities
