Description

This is a double track concrete viaduct over the young River Eye. The original stone bridge washed out during severe flooding in 1948 leading to diversions of East Coast Main Line trains over the Berwick - Kelso - Galashiels [1st] - Portobello East Junction route.

The bridge was replaced with a temporary structure and then the present concrete bridge.
