Work on £12m Premier Inn at Tweedbank begins
Work has started on a £12m scheme which will incorporate a new hotel, drive through coffee shop and petrol station at the new Borders Gateway development in Tweedbank.
The complex, on a site next to the Melrose roundabout, was granted planning permission by Scottish Borders Council in September.
And earlier this week diggers moved on to the site to begin clearing work.
The development on Tweedbank Drive is to comprise of a 71-bed Premier Inn hotel, a Costa drive through and a BP petrol filling station with M&S kiosk.
The hotel was granted an operating licence by Scottish Borders Council last month.
No formal date for the completion of the project has been announced by developer New Land Assets.
