Works will begin next month to resurface a section of Weensland Road.

The improvements on Weensland Road will begin on Monday 4 September and last six days.

From 4 to 8 September, the resurfacing works will be carried out under a convoy system between 9am and 4.30pm, allowing the road to remain open.

Due to Health and Safety legislation, the remaining works will mean Weensland Road – which is part of the A698 road – will be closed on Sunday 10 September from 8am to 5pm.

During the works, Weensland Road will also be subjected to parking restrictions.

Councillor Gordon Edgar, Scottish Borders Council’s Executive Member for Roads and Infrastructure, said: “I am pleased to see another important road in a Borders town resurfaced, which will benefit motorists and cyclists.

“We have tried to keep the disruption to a minimum and thank members of the public for their patience in advance of the works.”
