Project Lightning Expansion - PIA?

Hey all, not so much an issue as a wondering.

Looks like Virgin have put in (and had approved) some applications for quite a few cabinets in a rural area i'd never have thought they'd touch.

I'm wondering if someone in the know could advise if they are using the existing Openreach ducts, or will they be doing full on trench digging?

Also curious if they'll be flowing fibre right down the OR ducts to all premises, or will they just do that on a case by case basis when someone orders? Something tells me they won't be blowing individual fibres everytime there an order though!

TIA!

Individual fibre from the cab to the premises. They are using Openreach ducts to speed up the roll out.
