Since you brought the "Charlie X" pipe laying scene up, you're gonna love this: This is a much, much narrower corridor with only one floor panel (at least that's what the director intended, as far as I can tell from the editing - notice the wall right next to Charlie's right arm in the last image of this scene...it's also the reason why I don't it's mandatory to make the deck floors in the main corridors any thicker than necessary).
It's quite possible - Charlie's guy starts off lowering the pole right next to this wall:

Then we see the pole descending into the second hatch next to that wall:

Which is next to this wall:

So it could be a 4' corridor, but for what purpose? It's still a mystery pole!

I don't have a good idea, either, where, what and why they are doing there (other than this is still part of the ongoing upgrade process the Enterprise started after "Where No Man..." which was 83% complete by Stardate 2945.7 My fun theory: Pike's Enterprise had only 203 crew members, but because of the upgrade process they took 227 carpenters, plumbers, electricians etc. on board to finish these upgrades while underway).
As good as explanation as any - and everyone knows, "starships are made of wood"...
100 quatloos to anyone who can identify that quote (or paraphrase)
