Ayton road set to re-open?

sir, - Re Mr Lindsay’s letter in last week’s paper concerning the closure of the B6355 Ayton to Eyemouth Road.

Mr Lindsay is not the only one outraged at the apparent total lack of urgency in re-opening this popular road.

The road has been fully closed to through traffic for a full five months now; inconveniencing hundreds of drivers a day.

I enquired at the council three weeks ago and was told the bridge work was “on schedule” and the road would open on March 31.

After gullibly looking forward to that date, of course, the road stayed closed.

Now I am informed it will re-open on April 15! Let us wait and see what happens!
