Speed check area signs will be installed at both ends of the village in the coming weeks, a move which “significantly impacts on” motorists’ behaviour, according to Hawick and Denholm councillor Stuart Marshall.

Mr Marshall told Denholm Community Council ‘s latest meeting that a mobile speed camera unit would be deployed in the village too.

Funding has also been secured for red-textured road surfacing to slow down motorists, and Police Scotland’s ‘Pop-up Bob’, a life-size cardboard cutout of an officer holding a speed gun, is set to return.
