We would like to make you aware of upcoming / planned surface dressing works on the B5476

This site has been identified via a combination of local engineering judgment and asset management data as needing essential maintenance. The site forms part of a countywide programme of schemes, surface dressing is a quick, efficient and cost-effective way of preventing potholes and extents the life of the road. It forms a major part of our annual road maintenance programme and is being carried out alongside other preventative and reactive maintenance work.

Surface dressing offers many advantages:

  • It seals the road surface which prevents water getting into the underlying road structure.
  • It restores skid resistance to the road surface.
  • It helps to reduce spray caused by vehicles travelling on the wet road surface.
  • The rapid speed of the process means that disruption to road users, local businesses and emergency services is minimised.
  • It can extend the life of the road considerably, maximising the cost-effectiveness of limited highway maintenance funds.
