ADVANCED TRENCHLESS TECHNOLOGY
The list of Germany’s so-called households with poor access to modern data networks is still quite long, despite the German Government’s Digital Agenda, claiming that the NGA-Networks („Next Generation Access“) were supposed to be made available to the whole country by the end of 2018. This is not a great surprise, as the time from the application being sent to the German Support Programme for Digitalisation up to the surf start on home computers being stretched to the limit, much longer than expected.
The Lower Rhine town of Korschenbroich lies between the metropolitan areas of Mönchengladbach, Krefeld, Neuss and Düsseldorf in the west of Germany. Despite the growing population, Korschenbroich with approximately 5.500 ha has never lost its countryside character in all of its districts. After all, approx. 68 % of the total area are used for agriculture, just under 22 % are residential, commercial and transport areas, the rest divided into recreational, forest and water areas.
In this most difficult of years it’s nice to find a story that has positively affected a section of the population. TRACTO-TECHNIK UK customer, Impact Utilities, is an experienced trenchless technology contractor based in Essex. Prior to the start of lockdown back in March, the company won a contract to install new water mains to three large council-owned allotments in the locality.

In winter/spring 2020, the civil engineering company Helmut Lübben Fernmeldebau GmbH began the third of eight construction phases in in the Upper Bergisch region of Germany as part of the nationwide broadband expansion project funded by the federal and state governments: they successively installed the fibre optic cables along the road and, as requested also produced the house connections. The latter was also due for the two semi-detached houses no. 47 in the narrow but busy Marienheider Straße: Here the two landlords were eagerly waiting for the "fast internet" and thus also for the installation of their house connections. The two of them experienced live that this was going to be a special, fast and, for the large, lovingly designed front garden, an absolutely gentle construction measure - and they were amazed.
