Fibre cut between Vancouver and Calgary at Exshaw

There has been a fibre cut at Exshaw between Calgary and Vancouver. Direct connections to WestGrid systems in Alberta, Saskatchew and Manitoba are not working. The workaround is to ssh first to a BC system (like bugaboo.westgrid.ca) and then ssh to to your desired system.

== Updated: Richard on 2014-12-30 07:51 EST(2014-12-30 12:51 UTC) ==

Due to extreme cold temperature last night work had to stop. Work will continue this morning.

== Updated: Richard on 2014-12-29 07:04 EST(2014-12-29 12:04 UTC) ==

West side of fiber splicing has been completed.

Excavation of east side is progressing slower than expected due to frozen ground.

== Updated: Richard on 2014-12-27 07:25 EST(2014-12-27 12:25 UTC) ==

During cleanup train bridge collapsed, ceasing repair work. Cleanup work not expected to resume until 10amET. Time of repair is still unknown.

Fiber cut between Lake Louise and Exshaw is impacting all Calgary to Vancouver traffic.  No estimated time of repair exists however the fiber provider is working to resolve.
