REMINDER:TEMPORARY GALASHIELS ONE-WAY SYSTEM TO BE IN PLACE EARLY JANUARY

Motorists are reminded that the final phase of works at Ladhope Vale is to be undertaken from 5 to 26 January. The temporary one-way system in Galashiels town centre will be reinstated during this time.

Hugh Wark, project director for Network Rail, said: “These final works are necessary to allow for the safe construction of the new station at Ladhope Vale.

“With only a number of months until the new railway is completed, the end is now in sight for many of the major works still to be carried out.

“We’d like to thank local residents and businesses for their on-going patience and support whilst these works are underway.”

The Borders Railway project team have worked closely with Scottish Borders Council whilst the Ladhope Vale works have been carried out. The one-way system identified by the council will follow the same format as the works carried out at this location in late 2014 and will ensure the least disruptive layout.
