TRAFFIC congestion is set to continue after resurfacing work in Hawick was delayed.

The £215,000 works were due to be completed on Monday night, but have been hampered due to the heavy rain.

As a result, the three-way traffic signals on Buccleuch Street, at the Buccleuch Place junction, will remain in place until Thursday.

The overnight road closures will continue as programmed, although further heavy rain may cause further delays.
