Heavy rainfall blamed for culvert collapse that has closed a road

A road in the Scottish Borders has been closed after a culvert collapsed underneath it. The B6355 Ayton to Chirnside has been shut in both directions.

Scottish Borders Council have carried out repairs and a 900mm pipe which is required to replace the old culvert will be delivered in the next few days. Traffic is being diverted along the A6105 Berwick Road.

"The extremely wet conditions we have experienced over the last few months has clearly taken its toll on our local roads. This is another example of the type of damage caused by such heavy rain. This is a very challenging time but we continue to do all we can to carry out repairs as quickly as is possible."
