The small town of Duns became the county town for Berwickshire, Berwick upon Tweed itself lying over the border in England. However, this did not appear to see the town grow and prosper, the historic core of the town, around the market place, remaining small. There are a small number of shops and other services, but no more than any town of the size, and most of the housing estates around the town are post war. Despite being in England, the closeness of Berwick has seen it maintain its role as the main service centre for the area.
It is therefore perhaps no surprise that the town is only served by 4 digit A roads, namely the A6105 and A6112. They previously met in the town centre, but with the A6105 diverted out along Newtown Street, and the short Multiplex now along Currie Street, a town centre relief road, this is no longer the case. Despite their high numbers, both routes are long, the A6105 running east from Earlston to Berwick upon Tweed, whilst the A6112 runs north from Coldstream to the A1 at Grantshouse. A little to the north of Duns, the B6365 forks off the A6112 and makes a short link across to the long distance B6355.
