Local Councillor Paul Johnston has welcomed the re-opening of the Ardlethen Bridge.
“The re-opening will relieve smaller rural roads in the area from the inappropriate heavy traffic. There have been concerns about the lorries using roads that were never built to take such massive vehicles”
The bridge had been closed due to a lorry crash which damaged the bridge structure.
“I’m pleased it has re-opened ahead of when originally forecast and many thanks go to the Council and contractors for the efforts” said Councillor Johnston.
