Not warned of disruption

I would like to congratulate the person who decided to close the A1 at Grantshouse on the second week of August, and then send the diversion via Coldingham, where there are temporarily traffic lights already in place, which resulted in ridiculous delays for everyone travelling.

If anyone is able to find a pre-announcement of this, you are lucky because, like most people, the first I knew was via the matrix at the border. Even the company Twitter account of the contractors had none that I could find.

I have heard stories of people missing holiday flights as a result, and the Berwick Rangers game was delayed due to the bus not arriving until 3pm.

No doubt those in charge will still receive their annual bonuses for great performance.
