More motor misery for Galashiels

MORE road misery is ahead for Galashiels motorists as a five-month project takes place on a major route through the town.

The work registered by Morrison Construction and Scottish Water along a one-mile stretch of Melrose Road will see water rehab work carried out, including pipe insertions and repairs, to the existing main supply.

The project will run from Langlee Primary School area to the recycling centre off the C77 Langshaw Road, and is believed to be needed to accommodate the new 500-home Easter Langlee development.

Although no roads will be closed, disruptions are expected when work begins on June 18 until it is due to end on November 19.
