Surface Dressing Programme on May 19th

Information received this morning from Highways.

We will be starting our Surface Dressing programme on May 19, which is a cost-effective treatment to achieve a low maintenance, attractive finish for a tarmac surface that is showing signs of fatigue and prone to potholes.

Before we start this we do need to carry out repairs to some of the roads on the programme and will shortly start patching to level the road surface.

This pre surface dressing patching programme is below and advance warning of surface dressing will include information sent to residents and businesses, online at and and use of Twitter @nnhighways.

We will send you the programme of works and full information soon and please feel free to share.
