Phase two of the Skiprunning Burn Flood Protection Scheme in Jedburgh started earlier this week, the Scottish Borders Council informs.
This phase of the flood protection program will be completed by the end of 2015
“The start of phase two of the Skiprunning Burn Flood Protection Scheme will be a welcome sight for residents in Jedburgh,” said Councillor Gordon Edgar, Executive Member for Roads and Infrastructure.
“These works will reduce the impact of flooding, but it is still important that the Jedburgh public take steps to protect themselves.”
Phase one of the Skiprunning Burn Flood Protection Scheme was completed in March 2015, with local firm JMS Harkin carrying out four weeks of work which saw improvements made to the grille at Burn Wynd and creation of a flood relief drain at Duck Row.
