Road diversions are to be put in place in Galashiels town centre as work begins on a new railway station.
A temporary one-way system will be put in place from 27 July to 5 December along Ladhope Vale, Bridge Place and the junction of Stirling Street.
The work being carries out is part of the Borders Railway project.
“To allow us to carry out these works safely, we need to put in place an adequate exclusion zone and that requires implementing restrictions on traffic and pedestrians using the north side of Ladhope Vale.
“The temporary one-way system we are putting in place has been agreed with Scottish Borders Council and will be familiar to road users in Gala. We apologise in advance for any inconvenience that these changes will cause and thank road users for their continued patience while we look to complete the construction of the railway by next summer.”
The Redbridge viaduct between Tweedbank and Galashiels has been closed so that work, linked with the Borders Railway, can be carried out.
A popular footpath which runs over the bridge will also be closed, meaning a diversion of a mile for the people who use it.
Hugh Wark from Network Rail said:"We know that the Redbridge Viaduct link between Langlee and Tweedbank is an extremely popular walking and cycling route and we've done all we can to retain that access until now.
"The improvements we're making to the bridge mean that this relatively short eight week closure is unavoidable - we apologise for the temporary inconvenience.
He continued: "The bridge itself is in excellent condition and the structural works required are minimal. Once complete, this grand old structure will form another iconic landmark on the Borders Railway route."
