The A7 at Middleton Moor - Geograph - 3945911.jpg
The A7 at Middleton Moor With a profusion of signs - seventeen in total - county boundary; road junction signs; bus stop; warnings; Borders Railway contractor signs; and tourist information. Looking from The Scottish borders into Midlothian - the boundary is the Cakemuir Burn, which runs under the road along the line of the hedge at the left.

Auchenrivock 01/07/08

New alignment in a cutting which emerges just below the notch in the horizon. This is where the existing road was undermined by the River Esk which flows parallel to the road on the left.

Looking north up the A7 from Teindside Bridge. The patch of tarmac on the extreme left is the old A7 line, leading to the predecessor to the modern bridge.

Sheriffhall Roundabout - Geograph - 28770.jpg
Sheriffhall Roundabout
Build a motorwayish road to bypass a major city. Invite lots of traffic, and stick a roundabout in the middle, with traffic lights!
A piece of costcutting from the 1980's and a guaranteed queue. Three busy roads all cross here. The reason for the lack of a split level junction here was that it was considered too expensive to make safe the mine workings under the site. Without remedial work, the ground cannot support the weight of a bridge.

Skipper's Bridge - Geograph - 1383479.jpg
Skipper's Bridge
The bridge carries the A7 across the River Esk just south of Langholm. It was not built for modern traffic, and a set of traffic lights controls its use. This view is looking upstream towards Langholm.
New Tweed Bridge - Geograph - 624075.jpg
New Tweed Bridge
Once the A7 used two bridges, one over the Tweed and another over the Ettrick. Now replaced by a new bridge over the Tweed just below the confluence.
