The Borders Railway project has promised to continue to liaise with the community, ahead of the next major works in Midlothian.

Starting this weekend the longest bridge to be built from scratch is installed at Hardengreen roundabout.

Work will be carried out across the two weekends beginning February 14 and 28. This requires the closure of Hardengreen roundabout, the A7 and local roads from 10pm each Friday to 6am each Monday.

Craig Bowman, Network Rail communications manager for Borders Railway said: “We’re entering another busy period for the Newtongrange area and have recently been issuing letters regarding the Hardengreen viaduct installation and to the construction of a new footbridge near the bowling club. ”

Drivers travelling north on the A7 should follow diversion signs for B704 along Cockpen Road. Those travelling towards Edinburgh from Newtongrange will be diverted on the B6482.

Motorists using the B6392 (Dalhousie Road) and B703 (Newbattle Road) are asked to follow the diversion via A6094 (Eskbank Road) or B6392 (Melville Road).

Only local access will be permitted on the A7, south of Hardengreen roundabout to Dalhousie Mains cottages and local businesses.
