There are major roadworks in the centre of Peebles scheduled to begin on Monday 26th January and lasting for up to 4 weeks (though we've got everything crossed that they will be over and done within a shorter time period)
The Cuddy Bridge will be shut to vehicles from the bottom of Elcho Street Brae to the mini-roundabout at the end of the High Street. We've been assured that pedestrian access will be available at all times.

If you are coming in to Peebles from Edinburgh, Galashiels or the south side of the river you will be able to reach either the East Station Car Park or Kingsmeadows Car Park by the normal routes but you can expect much heavier traffic at some of the junctions.
The fun starts if you are approaching the town from the west with a substantial diversion around the Old Town in place (marked in red on the map) We've been advised that access in to Greenside Car Park will be maintained from the foot of Elcho Street Brae but if you're here for a leisurely visit to the town we'd recommend using the Neidpath Road Car Park, which is on the left just as you enter the town, immediately after the school crossing. From there you can make your way through beautiful Hay Lodge Park and along the Tweed in to town without involving your car in the roadworks or diversions.
