Important Travel Information for Borders Businesses

An announcement from Transport Scotland on forthcoming road works in the region.

BEAR Scotland, acting on behalf of Transport Scotland, are planning to carry out essential resurfacing works at 4 locations on the A68 Trunk road between Ancrum and the National Border.

Alongside these works a drainage investigation is planned to be carried out from Millerhill junction to Fordel Mains Junction. Starting on Monday 13th February to Wednesday 22nd February.

The programme of works can be found below with work taking place between the hours of 19:30 and 06:00 each night, with no works to be undertaken on Saturday or Sunday.

Unfortunately, due to the high volume of traffic through these sections of the A68 we have no option but to close the road to ensure the safety of the workforce and members of the travelling public.

During construction hours a clearly signed diversion route will be in place, please also refer to the attached location plans and diversion drawings for further details.

Access for emergency vehicles will be maintained at all times and all traffic management will be removed out with working hours.

If you require any further information on any of the proposed works, please do not hesitate to contact Josh Harrison by email at
