A section of A7 in Galashiels will be closed for two evenings for resurfacing.

The section of Abbotsford Road from the Tweed Road roundabout to Hayward Drive will be closed from 6pm to 11pm on Wednesday 21 and Thursday 22 August.

A diversion route will be available for southbound traffic via B6374 through Langlee, Lowood Bridge and A6091, and the opposite direction for northbound traffic.


X62 and X95 bus services will be impacted. Both services travelling south during this time will operate via:

  • Paton Street
  • Currie Road
  • Station Brae
  • B6374 through Langlee
  • Lowood Bridge
  • A6091

to Tweedbank roundabout (X62) and Kingsknowe roundabout (X95) for normal route, and the opposite direction for northbound buses. 

Minor delays will be experienced as a result.
