Hawick’s Wilton Park repairs hailed a step in right direction
Works in Hawick to improve safety on a footpath linking Wilton Park Road with the park have been hailed a success.
Scottish Borders Council workers completed the improvements this month, and Hawick and Denholm councillor Stuart Marshall has welcomed them, saying: “I asked the council to secure funding for this project from the small schemes budget as I was receiving reports of people tripping or slipping on the steep steps.
“The area now look great, and non-slip wire has also been added to the stairs to make people feel safer when accessing this beautiful part of our town.
“I think people who use this area on a regular basis will be thrilled.”
