Mansfield Road to reopen

Flood-damaged Mansfield Road is set to reopen tomorrow (Saturday).

It has been closed for more than five months and Scottish Borders Council has thanked local residents and businesses for their patience.

A spokesperson said: “We are pleased to confirm that the repair works to Mansfield Road are to be completed on Friday, with the road being fully open on Saturday.

“This area was severely damaged during Storm Desmond at the beginning of December and SBC would like to thank the residents and businesses in the affected area for their patience in allowing these repair works to be undertaken.”
