NEW PEDESTRIAN CROSSING FOR A68 JEDBURGH COMMENCING 9th MARCH

Construction of a new pedestrian crossing on the A68 at Jedburgh will commence Monday 9th March 2020 until Thursday 19th March 2020. This work will be conducted under a single lane closure with a temporary two-way traffic light system in operation.

From Monday 23rd March until Friday 27th March 2020, resurfacing and lining of this route will be completed with a temporary three-way temporary traffic light system in operation at Abbey Bridge End Junction.

The work will take place between 8.00am and 5.30pm, each day and the signals will be manned throughout. The road will re-open as normal outwith these times, for the duration of the scheme.

This new controlled crossing point,  with a value of £65,000, will improve pedestrian safety and connectivity for disabled citizens. A new High Friction Surface and improved road markings will also be installed at this location.

Pedestrians will be directed to use underpasses or an alternative signed route while the work is taking place. Traffic Management Operatives will be in attendance to assist pedestrians who require any assistance.

This scheme has been planned in consultation with Transport Scotland, Traffic Scotland, the emergency services, bus operating companies, local businesses, Jedburgh Community Council and Scottish Borders Council.

Please note, all schemes are weather dependent and may be cancelled or rescheduled if weather conditions are not favourable.
