Road repairs in Hawidck and Langholm will see the A7 shut between Canonbie and Hawick for four nights from Monday.

The route will be closed between 8pm and 6am, with both north and southbound traffic diverted to the B6357, A6088 and A698, adding around 30 minutes to journey times.

On Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, work takes place between the Sandbed and Dovemount roundabouts.

A spokesperson for roads operator Bear Scotland said that local access to these areas would be maintained but through traffic prohibited.
