Parts of Selkirk, including the A7, will be closed for periods throughout the rest of the month as a series of road works are completed in the town.

Scottish Borders Council say the decision to co-ordinate resurfacing and utilities works was made to minimise disruption for local people and traders.

Main closures include:

  • Ettrick Terrace (A7) from 13 to 24 November - the road will reopen on Saturday 18 and Sunday 19 November, before a full closure until 24 November.
  • Tower Street (A7) from 20 to 24 November - Tower Street will be closed for 24 hours each day works linked to the £450,000 Selkirk Streetscape project.

Shoppers are advised that businesses will remain open throughout the works.
