Regional Repair Delays - RESOLVED


Posted on: Tuesday 3 February 2015, 15:22

This is an update to the previous post regarding MBORC (Matters Beyond Our Reasonable Control) declarations from BT Openreach.

"Parts of the UK, in particular Scotland and the north of England, were hit with severe storm conditions, including strong wind and lightning strikes, from Monday 8 December 2014 and continuing into Tuesday 9 and Wednesday 10 December 2014.

This seriously impacted OpenreachÂ’s infrastructure, both above and below ground with fault intake in these areas at extremely high levels. The ongoing adverse conditions have also seriously impacted transport in the region.

Openreach declared MBORC for repair activities, in the following area, with effect from 23:59 on 11 December 2014.

Highlands and Islands

We have been directing extensive additional resource into this area and we are now able to lift MBORC with effect from 23:59 Tuesday 3 February 2015."

Kind regards,
