Surface dressing programme starts next week

9 May 2024

Our annual surface dressing programme starts next week, to help improve the surface of roads across the county.

If you see yellow advanced warning signs of surface dressing works taking place in your neighbourhood, please make sure you park your car elsewhere while our team are on site.

Surface dressing extends the life of a road surface, using a layer of bitumen to seal the road surface and glue the chippings that are then rolled on top.

Roads can only be surface dressed when the weather is warmer and the materials can bind together more effectively and the chippings are less likely to be washed away by rain.

Find out which roads will be surface dressed.
