Installation Instructions

Telstra Guidelines on Correct Pit Installation:

General Installation Instructions:

Installing pits is a crucial step in ensuring reliable utility access for various infrastructure projects. In this summarized guide, we will provide a comprehensive summary of Telstra’s installation instructions for pits. By following these step-by-step procedures, you can effectively install pits and optimize underground utility access. This is to be used as a general guide, to properly and effectively install pits, please refer to the above links only.


  1. Preparing for Installation: Before commencing the installation process, it is important to gather the necessary tools and materials. These may include the pit itself, a suitable base material (e.g., crushed rock or stabilized sand), backfill material, PVC pipe supports (if required), and cover options. Ensure you have all the necessary safety equipment, such as gloves and protective eyewear, and familiarize yourself with the pit’s specifications and load rating requirements.


  1. Excavation: Begin by marking the pit’s location according to the project requirements and local regulations. Excavate the designated area, ensuring the dimensions accommodate the pit’s size and any additional clearance requirements. Exercise caution when digging to avoid damaging existing utilities and ensure proper shoring or support for trench stability.


  1. Pit Placement and Alignment: Carefully lower the pit into the excavated area, ensuring proper alignment with the surrounding infrastructure. The pit should be securely positioned to support the required vertical loads and withstand compaction from the surrounding soil. Use appropriate techniques and equipment to ensure the pit is level and stable.


  1. Ducting and Conduit Access: Using the built-in cutting guides, adjust the pit’s height if necessary to accommodate the desired ducting and conduit access points. Carefully cut openings in the pit’s sidewalls using recommended tools and techniques. Take care to ensure clean cuts and remove any debris that may hinder the proper installation of ducts or conduits.


  1. Watertightness and Backfilling: To ensure watertightness, inspect the pit for any gaps or openings. Seal any potential entry points using suitable sealing materials or techniques recommended by the manufacturer. Once satisfied with the pit’s integrity, begin backfilling the excavated area with the specified base material, ensuring proper compaction to provide stability and load-bearing capacity. Follow any additional guidelines provided by local authorities or project specifications.


  1. Internal Support and Load Ratings: If required by the project or load rating specifications, install internal PVC pipe supports within the pit. These supports will enhance the pit’s structural integrity and contribute to achieving the desired load rating. Ensure the supports are securely in place and properly aligned with the designated conduits or ducts.


  1. Cover Installation: Select an appropriate cover option, considering factors such as load rating requirements, aesthetics, and accessibility. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for installing the chosen cover, ensuring a secure and reliable fit. The cover should provide easy access to the pit while effectively protecting the utilities within.


Proper installation of pits is essential for ensuring reliable underground utility access in infrastructure projects. By following Telstra’s installation instructions summarized above, you can confidently install pits and create a robust foundation for your telecommunications, electrical, air, rail, or road projects. Always refer to the original document and consult with relevant authorities for specific guidelines and regulations pertaining to your installation.
