Surface dressing is a quick, efficient and cost-effective way of maintaining skid-resistant and waterproof road surfaces.

It helps to prevent deterioration, extends the life of the road and restores a uniform appearance.

The process involves spraying the surface with bitumen, then spreading stone chippings on top and rolling these into the bitumen.

Once the bitumen has set, the road is swept to remove any loose chippings.

This year’s programme, which will cover about 200 miles, will be the first delivered by NY Highways, the roads maintenance company created by the county council last year.

NY Highways has employed a new contractor, Kiely Bros.

The contractor will put up signage at each location before work starts to alert residents and drivers.

Barrie Mason, Assistant Director Highways and Transportation, said: “The contractor carries out the work quickly, and the programme can be affected by weather.

"This can makes communicating exact dates challenging, so we urge residents to check the advance site signage regularly.

"The contractor will amend this to highlight any change in the schedule."

Drivers are advised to heed the temporary speed limit put in place while the new surface stabilises to prevent damage to their own vehicle and those of other road users.
