ADVANCE NOTICE OF SURFACE DRESSING WORKS IN BARWELL

ADVANCE NOTICE OF SURFACE DRESSING WORKS IN BARWELL

Notification has been received from Leicestershire County Council Highways that the following roads in Barwell have surface dressing works programmed for this summer with some already having been completed.

Scheduled for June

High Street, Mill Street, Hinckley Road, The Common, Stapleton Lane, Kirkby Road

Scheduled for July

Charnwood Road, The Drive

Surface dressing is a preventative maintenance treatment that seals the road surface, extends the life of the road, reduces the occurrence of potholes and increases skid resistance by laying chippings on a bitumen "glue" and then rolling them into the surface. Excess chippings are swept up and then compacted further by vehicular traffic. Road markings are replaced afterwards. The works are quick moving and, dependent upon the road length numerous sites can be completed in a day. Residents of roads affected in the Parish will receive a leaflet one working day prior to the works so that arrangements can be made to move any vehicles.
