THERE is just one week left for people to share their experiences of walking and wheeling on the A7 corridor in Selkirk.

Over the past few years there have been incidents where pedestrians have been injured while strolling on the pavement next to the road.

Transport officials have been gathering feedback from locals since the start of November as part of an aim to improve safety for people walking and wheeling around the town centre.

But the deadline to take part is approaching, with the consultation set to close on Monday, December 11.

Tommy Deans, BEAR Scotland network manager for the south east trunk road unit, said: “So far there has been a strong response to the consultation with over 100 respondents as well as good attendance at the public meeting early in November.

“This is the opportunity for the people of the town to have their say and let us know their ideas for improvements to the existing path of the A7 through Selkirk.

“We’re urging people to complete the survey before it closes so we can ensure that any improvements take into consideration the views of the local community.”

The consultation is seen as an ‘important first step to identifying and designing potential pedestrian improvements’ and encouraging more sustainable journeys in the town.

Hard copies of the survey forms are available at the post office as well as in bookshop Scott’s Selkirk.
