Cornmill revamp starts in Galashiels

Works began in Cornmill Square last week to create a new civic space for the community, as part of the Galashiels Inner Relief Road improvements.

Councillor Gordon Edgar, Scottish Borders Council’s executive member for roads and infrastructure, said: “It has taken a lot of work to reshape Galashiels to change the priority of the town centre towards local residents, shoppers and businesses.

“The safer and improved infrastructure will complement the surroundings but more importantly provide the community with opportunities to attract more footfall into the town centre.

“I would also like to 
remind people that 
although works are under way at Cornmill Square, 
pedestrian access has and will be maintained to all local businesses until the works are complete in April.”
