Planned highways works

Highway resurfacing and surface dressing

Carriageway reconstruction and resurfacing will be required for whole roads and carriageways which have been identified with large areas of poor condition or defects.

This sort of work typically requires notification and planning permissions above normal patching.

Works detailed here do not have scheduled dates at this time. Consultation letters will be delivered to residents on all streets affected prior to start of any works in your area.

Types of works

Reconstruction and resurfacing might involve different types of work, dependent on the nature of any damage or defect.

Patching and surface dressing

Patching and surface dressing includes filling potholes. Pot holes will be filled in fully, then covered in a tar and chippings treatment.

Patching and surface dressing is only suitable for roads with few structural defects and low amounts of patching.

These repairs have a 7-year expected life span.

Plane and resurface

Planing and resurfacing involves the removal of the highway surface and replacement with new materials.

These repairs have an expected life span of over 15 years.

Micro asphalt

Micro asphalt repairs involve applying a thin layer of tarmac to cover minor cracks and to make the surface last longer.

This approach is typically used in more residential areas. As with surface dressing, minor defects like potholes and cracking are dealt with, then a thin flexible surface is applied.

These repairs have a 10-year expected life span.
