Local Road News - Surface dressing


Between 17th June and 7th July 2021, the roads highlighted on the attached map are scheduled for surface dressing. These sites will form a rolling programme that is

weather dependent and liable to change. The works are likely to affect the carriageway for between 1 and 3 days with in these dates.

For safety reasons, work will be carried out either under a road closure with local diversion in place or with temporary speed restrictions of 10mph and convoy working.

Signs on site will indicate the traffic management in operation. During the closure periods there will be no on street parking available. Parking restrictions will be

imposed to prevent waiting or parking on the roads stated above. Any vehicle waiting in contravention of any restriction imposed by this Notice may be removed under

the provisions of the Removal and Disposal of Vehicles Regulations 1986. If a vehicle has been towed the owner will need to contact our towing contractors Bride Valley

on 01305 889421.

Working times will be between the hours of 7am and 5pm, works will not take place at night or over the weekend. Where we know of school transport, we will ensure

this is able to pass through the site or alter working hours accordingly.

Due to the unpredictable weather, a narrower window for the work will be advertised two weeks before it’s due to start through a public notice email and yellow

advance notice boards will be placed on site two days in advance.

Businesses and local farms affected by the works will also be notified two weeks before work starts.

Access for drivers and pedestrians will be maintained where possible, however they may be asked to wait while the site is made safe before travelling through.

A small surplus of loose chippings will remain on the road, these will be removed by a suction sweeper around two days after the work.

If you wish to discuss any issues regarding this work, please contact us.

Yours faithfully
