Preventative treatments for Dorset’s roads get underway this September
Work gets underway this September to preserve more of our roads using a preventative treatment called micro-surfacing.
Micro-surfacing seals the road, improves the texture and prevents water ingress. It is a cost-effective treatment for worn, but not structurally failing, roads that keeps them in good condition. It also adds reinforcement to the existing surface.
The work will be carried out by our contractors, Kiely, and affected households will receive a leaflet before the works start.
Due to the equipment size and number of vehicles used to carry out the work, roads will be closed for the treatment to be carried out.
Road closures will be from 8am to 5pm. An onsite team member will be available to address any queries.
Please look for advance notice signs which will be put out before the start of work. The signs will also contain contact information
Residents will also be asked to not park vehicles on the road/verges when the work is due to start: ‘No parking’ boards will be erected 2-3 days in advance.
The first set of work takes place between 18 and end September. Further locations will be publicised for October and November.
