Relief as two-way driving returns to Galashiels
COUNCIL leader David Parker was joined by Braw Lad Ryan Mania and Braw Lass Nicola Mackay to open the final phase of Galashiels Inner Relief Road.
The £12 million scheme began six years ago with the demolition of Station Brae.
And poor motorists in the town have suffered continual disruption ever since with detours and roadworks.
Councillor Parker thanked residents for their patience ahead of cutting the ribbon during the opening ceremony.
