Permanent Selkirk one-way system on horizon

Proposals for a permanent one-way traffic system for part of Selkirk are likely to be unveiled before the end of the month.

A temporary one was introduced 18 months ago due to concerns about a roadside wall in Yarrow Terrace.

A legal dispute is ongoing over responsibility for repairs in the area.

In addition, there have been reports that some drivers are ignoring one-way signs - prompting calls for the permanent system.

Local councillors have been told most of the problems with the temporary arrangements are down to satellite navigation systems using old data - and pointing drivers through "road closed" signs.

The creation of a permanent one-way system, involving a new traffic order, should update some satellite systems.

The finer points of the proposed scheme will be revealed within the next fortnight.
