Major road resurfacing work continues

Did you know we’ve improved more than 80 roads across the county since May?


Our contractors are just finishing this surface dressing work which works to extend the life of roads by spreading a layer of bitumen followed by a layer of chippings, with loose chippings swept away later.

Next we’re turning our attention to roads in need of more in-depth repairs as we prepare to resurface more than 110 roads this summer.

We've grouped the work together to make it more efficient, so that all the jobs in a particular area are carried out around the same time, starting with six roads in the north-west and north-east of the county.

Thanks for bearing with us while we carry out this important work to keep our roads in good condition.
