Call for A1 camera

Berwickshire’s MSP John Lamont has called on Traffic Scotland to install a traffic camera on the A1 to allow commuters to check the condition of the road.

He commented: “It is disappointing that there are no cameras on the A1 until Edinburgh. With the weather as unpredictable as it has been, it is important that people make as informed a decision as possible over whether or not it is safe for them to drive. These cameras have allowed drivers in other parts of Scotland to see conditions before they set out. It would be helpful if Berwickshire drivers and other A1 users had the same facility.”
