Dual the A1 and improve rural roads

Good local roads are vital for people’s everyday lives, so they can visit family, get to work and run their businesses. 

The SNP-Green Government in Holyrood is anti-driver. They won’t invest in local roads or fund councils properly to fix potholes. 

They are out of touch with how much people in the Borders need good roads for their everyday lives. 

I’ll keep pushing to dual the A1 and improve local roads because I know how vital it is that we have good, safe roads across the Scottish Borders.

Borders roads on course to be the worst in Scotland
