A68 Gattonside Junction

9 December 2019

Overnight Maintenance



Essential road safety maintenance will take place overnight on the A68 at Gattonside Junction from Monday 9th December until Friday 13th December 2019. The scheme will be carried out between the hours of 8pm and 6am, each night.

To allow this scheme to take place there will be a full closure of the A68 carriageway between Earlston and Ravenswood with a signed diversion route in operation.

A68 southbound traffic will be diverted at Earlston to join the A6105 in an easterly direction and will turn right at the A6089 Junction in Gordon. Traffic will proceed on this route to merge onto the westbound A698 near the River Tweed and upon reaching Bonjedward, traffic will be able to rejoin the A68. Traffic intending to join the A6091 from here will travel in a northerly direction to Ravenswood Roundabout. Traffic already travelling on the A6091 and intending to use the A68 northbound will follow the above diversion but in reverse.

A68 northbound traffic will be diverted at Bonjedward to join the A698 and will also be required to use the diversion route detailed above but in reverse.

Please note, all schemes are weather dependent and may be cancelled or rescheduled if weather conditions are not favourable. For the current status of all road schemes please visit our website: http://scottishtrunkroadsse.amey.co.uk/current-works/
