    Anyone know if this is now fully open?.
    Was meant to be open in the spring but a few weeks ago it seemed there was still quite a lot of work remaining.
    Thinking of a jaunt -Granites - Innerleithen,Innerleithen to Peebles by cycle path and thence to Eddleston then on back roads at Waterheads via Gladhouse and Temple
    But hate the ghastly A703 with its crap road surface and infernal traffic
    Not doing it again until the new path is open!

    The worst road surface is between Eddleston and Waterheads though...

    I don't think it will be open yet either. Perhaps consider returning via the Meldons?

    Assume it's not fully open, some tweets showing the progress:

    Had no idea this was happening - a pleasant surprise when I drove past it in the car and realised it must be a cycle path (I had previously assumed the first bit I saw was a building site access or utility works.) Excited to try it when it opens!

    I’ve heard that the Edddleston Water path be open in full before end of July.

    I’ve heard that the Edddleston - Peebles path won’t be open in full before end of July.

    Doesn’t look like it will be open by the end of the month!
    Rode alongside it this afternoon and not a workie to be seen
    Can’t see any progress since I was last there about three weeks ago
    Hope it’s not stalled due to financial issues
