Reston road latest to be resurfaced

Published: 10th January 2019


A section of B6438 road in Reston will be closed for resurfacing improvements from Wednesday 16 to Friday 18 January from 9am to 5pm.

A section of West End – from Viewpark to West Preston House - will be closed on those days.

What is in place to minimise disruption?

Staff will be onsite to assist with local access and school buses will be accommodate through the works. Access will be maintained for pedestrians and cyclists.

We will also provide two pedestrian guides – one at either end of the works - to escort parents and pupils to and from the school. This will happen during afternoons only as the road closure will not affect the morning school run.

A letter drop is due to be carried out for all local businesses and households affected, outlining the phasing and diversionary arrangements.

Resurfacing improvements

The works are part of a £2.6million resurfacing programme which will see a total of 32 Borders roads improved.

The programme is predominantly funded by an additional £1.8m investment announced as part of our budget in February 2018 to target road repairs across the region.

The majority of the programme targets key routes in towns and villages which require improvements.
