MBORC Declaration - Cumbria


Posted on: Tuesday 8 December 2015, 14:19

We have received notice from our suppliers of a declaration of MBORC which is preventing them being able to provide actions within normal timescales. Please see the notification below:

"Parts of the UK were hit with severe storm conditions, with record levels of rainfall and flooding, from the end of last week and over the weekend of 5 and 6 December 2015.

This has seriously impacted Openreach's infrastructure, both above and below ground, with fault intake in the affected areas at extremely high levels and serious access and mobility problems for our engineering teams.

Openreach is therefore declaring MBORC for repair activities in the following area, with effect from 23:59 7 December 2015:


We have been taking steps, including directing additional resource into the area, to bring the position back to normal as quickly as possible.

We are monitoring the situation and will remove MBORC as soon as service can be restored to the levels they were at immediately before the severe weather."

Kind regards
