The A7 between Edinburgh and Galashiels is a local road and is the responsibility of Midlothian and Scottish Borders councils. Current developments in relation to the trunk road section of the A7 between Galashiels and the Border includes the A7 Auchenrivock Improvement Project which will upgrade 2.3 kilometres of single carriageway road to improve overtaking opportunities immediately south of Langholm and the Selkirk bypass feasibility study.

The next round of major new investment in the trunk road network will emerge from the Strategic Transport Projects Review, which will examine the longer term needs of Scotland’s nationally strategic transport network to develop the investment plan for 2012 to 2022. The Strategic Transport Projects Review is due to report in summer 2008.
