Bridge Repair

ESSENTIAL MAINTENANCE ON A68 WASHINGBURN BRIDGE COMMENCING 18th NOVEMBER

Parapet repair work on the A68 at Washingburn Bridge will take place from 9am on Monday 18th November until 5pm on Friday 22nd November 2019.

This scheme will benefit around 7,500 vehicles using this section of the A68 each day, by restoring the bridge parapet, and reducing the need for more extensive maintenance in the future.

 The work will be carried out under a continuous single closure of the northbound lane of the A68, with a temporary traffic light system in operation.

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

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