Dip in temperatures tonight so gritters will be out from 3.30pm presalting priority routes and check again at 6am tomorrow #sbctravel
Scottish Borders Council plans to grit roads in the Borders from 3:30pm today.
The A66 is closed both ways closed due to an overturned lorry and recovery work between A685 / B6276 New Road (Brough) and A6 Kemplay Bank / A686 Carleton Avenue (Kemplay Bank Roundabout, Penrith).
Network Rail are urging passengers in the Border region to check before they travel, as Storm Henry approaches Britain.
The wind is expected to strengthen overnight with gusts up to 70mph.
Journeys may be delayed by the 50mph speed limits in place on the Settle - Carlisle railway between Settle and Appleby, the Cumbrian coast line and the West Coast mainline between Garstang and Tebay.
As always, our advice to passengers is to check before you travel, using National Rail Enquiries for the latest information. With even more rain predicted to fall on already saturated ground, there is the potential for localised flooding, as well as possible damage from high winds which may cause disruption to passengers planning to travel."
The railway between Whitehaven and Workington is closed due to the sea wall being breached a Parton.
The sea wall, which supports and protects the railway, and around 700 yards of ballast – the heavy stone which provides the foundations for the railway track – were damaged by high tides as Storm Jonas hit the Cumbrian coastline.
Ian Joslin from Network Rail said:
Our structural experts are on site assessing the damage to the sea wall and track caused by yesterday’s storm but are at the mercy of the tides for some parts of the assessment.
Once the extent of the damage is clear we will be able to plan the repairs so we can safely re-open the line to passengers as quickly as possible.
The A781 is now closed between A780 Buccleuch Street and Dockhead in Dumfries due to flooding.
