Floodwaters fill bend into Wester Pencaitland (Video)

Downpour causes A6093 into Pencaitland to flood. Without better roadside drainage it will happen again. An accident waiting to happen?

Some locals will already be familiar with a bend on the way into Wester Pencaitland that tends to flood badly with heavy rain. This morning was no different, at one point covering three quarters of the road’s width.

The problem stems from the large field to the immediate north. It forms a large catchment for any downpour which then inevitably works it way down to this poorly drained bend at one point on the road.

If you’ve experienced problems with this stretch of road we’d like to know about it. Comment below or email website@pencaitland.org.
