A STRETCH of the A68 will shut tonight (Monday, January 11), with closures set to affect motorists throughout the working week.

BEAR Scotland, Transport Scotland’s operating company, will carry out “essential resurfacing” on 1.2km of the road at Blackburn Farm, around 3km north of Lauder.

From tonight, the road will be closed in both directions between 7.30pm-6.30am every night between January 11-15.
