Property facts for Borders Gateway, Galashiels
Borders Gateway occupies a dominant position on the Melrose Roundabout, the major interchange on the A6091 for roads to Galashiels (2 miles), Melrose (1 mile), Newtown St Boswells (5 miles) and Jedburgh (14 miles), as well as being the entrance to Tweedbank. The A6091 links the A7 to the A68, with the Melrose Roundabout averaging approximately 13,000 daily vehicle movements. As such the site offers easy access to a local population of circa 18,000 (Tweedbank, Galashiels & Melrose), with Tweedbank itself due to expand rapidly with an additional 300 homes forming part of a Council led master plan for the Lowood Estate. Within 400 yards of the site is the recently reopened Borders Railway terminus at Tweedbank, providing half hourly direct services to Edinburgh Waverley (55 mins) to circa 400,000 passengers per annum. As well as serving commuter traffic, the railway has provided a new gateway for tourists visiting local attractions such as Abbotsford House, (home to Sir Walter Scott) and Melrose Abbey, both of which are within 1.5 miles of the site. The station is also popular with cyclists, providing direct access to National Cycle Route 1.
