Access will be maintained for emergency vehicles at all times and vehicles will be able to pass the trial run vehicle at a number of points along the route.
Traffic updates on the day will be communicated through Radio Borders. Information on the trial run can also be found on the Langhope Rig Project Website (www.sse.com/langhoperig) and on our project twitter feed (@Langhope).
