B711 - Road Closure

Road Closure Map

The B711 will be closed between Borthwick Brae and Roberton for 5 days from 3 - 7 September inclusive.  The road will be closed between 8.30 and p.m. and means that there will be no through route to Hawick along this road at those times.  Please see attached map for closure location.

Broadband Changes - STOP PRESS!

Thanks to Donald Knox for spotting it, but BT have lifted the artificial limits at the exchange and you may be now receiving much faster than 0.5Mbps broadband speeds. Donald has reported 9Mbps (download speed) at Deanburnhaugh, which is enough to get unbuffered video (eg iPlayer). The farther from the exchange (Borthwickbrae) you are, the lower the speed you're likely to get, unfortunately.

 

Bear in mind that this is before any fibre cabinets have been built, so further improvements in speed could be expected in due course.
