Essential maintenance on the A702 south of Carlops to West Linton will take place from 8am to 5pm, each day, commencing Monday, September 19 till Friday, September 23.

The work will be carried out under temporary traffic lights, with a convoy system in operation.

This scheme has been planned in consultation with Police Scotland and Scottish Borders Council.

An Amey spokeman said: “These essential works, with a value of £150,000, will benefit around 6,600 vehicles using this route each day by ensuring road users experience greater journey time reliability, continued safety and comfort.”
