A number of roads in the county are to be resurfaced over the next few weeks.

The surface dressing will see hot tar sprayed on to the road surfaces, before it is overlaid by chippings, which the county council says will make the roads safer to drive on and preserve them from decay.

County council cabinet member for highways, Cllr Michael Clarke, said: “Surface dressing allows us to carry out repairs to large areas of the highway in a very cost-effective way.

“This treatment seals and increases the texture of the surface of the road so that the surface is less susceptible to damage in the future.

“A good surface dressing treatment can last many years.”

The treatment is weather dependent and, as such, timings are subject to change.
