Published: Thursday, 9th January 2020

A community drop-in session will take place this month to give members of the public the chance to discuss potential safety options at Liddesdale Road.

Drop-in session details

The session takes place on Thursday 23 January in the Heart of Hawick’s 206 Room from 4pm to 7pm. 

The options for discussion include possible movement of speed limits, narrowing of carriageway, widening of pavement, alterations to lining and electronic signs.

Recent traffic surveys at a section of Liddesdale Road chosen after feedback from residents showed an average vehicle speed of approximately 26 miles per hour.

“There was considerable discussion in the community last year about Liddesdale Road and we hope local residents will take the opportunity to consider the options and provide their views at the drop-in session on 23 January.”
