Regional Engineering & Repair Delays - RESOLVED

This is to confirm the MBORC is now listed as closed. The notification received from our suppliers is as below:

"Parts of the UK, in particular the South West and Wales, were hit with severe storm conditions with heavy rain, wind and lightning strikes, from Wednesday 8 into Thursday 9 October 2014.

This seriously impacted OpenreachÂ’s infrastructure, both above and below ground with fault intake in these areas at extremely high levels. Openreach therefore declared MBORC for repair activities, in three areas, on 10 October and a further area, on 14 October 2014.

We have been working hard to bring the position back to normal as quickly as possible and removed MBORC from one area on 30 October 2014.

We are now able to remove MBORC from the three remaining areas, as follows, with effect from 23:59 4 November 2014:

North Wales
Swansea
Truro

This is the final lifting of MBORC for repair activities and MBORC MB10946 is now closed."

Apologies for any inconvenience which may have been experienced during this.

Kind regards,

Matthew Cruise
Customer Relations
