ROADS bosses have announced further planned closures of the A68 next week.

The carriageway will be closed for two nights, between 8pm and 6am, from next Monday to the south of Jedburgh.

Diversions will be in place throughout the £70,000 improvement project near Glen Douglas.

Northbound traffic will be diverted via the A6088 and travel to the A698 where vehicles will re-join the northbound A68.

Traffic wishing to travel to Kelso will re-join the A698 at Bonjedward.

Southbound traffic will follow the same diversion route in the opposite direction.

This scheme has been planned in consultation with Transport Scotland, Traffic Scotland, the emergency services, bus operating companies and Scottish Borders Council.
