A68 at Glen Douglas Junction

16 September 2019

Overnight Maintenance


Road improvement works on the A68 at Glen Douglas Junction will take place overnight between 8pm and 6am, each night, from Monday 16th September to Wednesday 18th September 2019.

This scheme, with a value of £70,000, will benefit around 2,500 vehicles using this section of the A68 each day, by improving the condition of the carriageway, and reducing the need for more extensive maintenance in the future.

This work requires full overnight closures of the A68 at this location, with a signed diversion route in operation.

Northbound traffic will be diverted via the A6088 and travel to the A698 where vehicles will re-join the northbound A68. Traffic wishing to travel to Kelso will re-join the A698 at Bonjedward.

Southbound traffic will follow the same diversion route in the opposite direction.

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.
