MBORC Declaration - UPDATE


Posted on: Wednesday 21 September 2016, 16:32

We have received communications from our suppliers regarding the MBORC (Matters Beyond Our Reasonable Control) declaration for some areas of the country. Please find the information regarding this below:

"Parts of the UK experienced severe weather last week, including extensive lightning strikes and heavy rain, commencing on Friday 16 September 2016. This caused serious impacts to Openreach infrastructure, with damage both above and below ground, and fault intake in affected areas at extremely high levels. Openreach declared MBORC for repair activities in five areas, with effect from 23:59 19 September 2016.

Openreach is now declaring MBORC for repair activities in two further areas, with effect from 23:59 21 September 2016:

St Albans

MBORC remains in place in the following areas:

Northumberland and Wearside
Thames North
Thames South
*second event - MBORC declared 16 September 2016.

We're taking steps, including directing additional engineers into these areas, to bring the position back to normal as quickly as we possibly can.

We'll continue to monitor the situation in these areas and we'll remove MBORC as soon as service can be restored to the levels they were at immediately before the severe weather"
