Coldstream traffic orders go to Area Forum

The proposed new traffic orders affecting a number of roads in Coldstream will go to next month’s Berwickshire Area Forum for a decision.

The orders include changes to parking restrictions on the High Street and Duns Road and the introduction of a one way system at Parkside and Home Place, and have proved divisive in the town. A petition was started against some of the proposals for the High Street which involve increasing restrictions in front of the Co-op building and along in front of the war memorial and Coldstream Community Centre, removing three spaces near the Leet Bridge and one near the Bank of Scotland.

There are also questions about the one-way system proposed at Parkside and a suggestion made that traffic along Home Place should be two way up to the junction into Bennecourt Drive.
