We have started detailed design on a project to widen Teviot Road between Middle Road (north) and Greenbank Road (south).
The upgrade will help to ensure Teviot Road is able to safely accommodate future traffic demands.
The project is included in our Integrated Local Transport Plan.
For more information, please download Way2Go Plan (PDF 1.3 MB).

We aim to minimise property impacts as much as possible on our projects, however, in some cases we need to acquire a corridor of land from properties for the wider road design.
We have held meetings with property owners we have identified as being potentially impacted by the project.
The project is currently in the detailed design phase and this work is expected to continue through 2021.
We will keep you informed throughout this project.
