Council works on road programme

Ref: PR 4667

We are working to bring the district's roads up to scratch as a part of a resurfacing programme set to begin from August 18 and lasting until the 2nd week in September.

The process known as surface redressing, involves spraying hot bitumen on the roads followed by an application of stone chippings, sealing the surface from water and extending the life of the treated roads.

Cllr David Dagger, Cabinet Member for Transport and Highways said: "We want roads across our district to be of a high standard and the start of our resurfacing programme echoes this.

"We want residents to be aware that there will be some inevitable short term delays during these essential works and urge everyone to set off in plenty of time to reach their desired destination.

"There will be some temporary posted speed limits and we are encouraging drivers to avoid fierce acceleration and braking to prevent damage to the new surface."
