  • Temporary traffic lights for six weeks, commencing 26 September 2022

Temporary traffic lights will be in place on the A68 north of Jedburgh for six weeks while Transport Scotland’s operating company BEAR Scotland carries out essential repair works to an embankment on the east side of the trunk road.

These works will help to stabilise the embankment supporting the A68 and improve the drainage system on this section of the A68.

The works will be carried out during daylight hours over six weeks, beginning on Monday 26 September and concluding on Monday 7 November.

Tommy Deans, BEAR Scotland’s South East Network Manager, said: “For the safety of the workforce and the travelling public, it will be necessary to close one lane of the A68 while we complete repairs to the embankment. Temporary traffic lights will be in place for the duration of the works.

“We’re grateful to road users and local communities for their patience and understanding.”

Motorists are encouraged to plan ahead before setting out by checking the Traffic Scotland website www.trafficscotland.org for up-to-date travel information and allowing extra time for their journey.
