A SECTION of safety barrier on the A1 will be replaced after it was damaged during an incident involving a 'jack-knifed' HGV.

Around 60 metres of safety barrier in the central reservation of the A1 north of Grantshouse was damaged after being struck by a "jack-knifed HGV" on the afternoon of Tuesday, March 5.

In order for BEAR Scotland to repair the section of safety barrier, lane and speed restrictions will be in place on the main road until Wednesday, March 13.

Tommy Deans, BEAR Scotland’s South East Network Manager, said: “Lane and speed restrictions will be in place for the safety of road users and our workforce until this damaged barrier is replaced.

“We’re currently mobilising resources to carry out the works and will complete them as quickly and safely as possible.”

Works to replace the barriers will begin on Sunday night (March 10).

One lane in both directions will remain open during the works which BEAR Scotland believes will be completed by the morning of March 13, with all lane and speed restrictions lifted.
