Footpaths in several parts of Grimsby are due to be resurfaced over the next few weeks, using a process known as slurry sealing.
The process involves laying a slurry – a mix of bitumen, emulsion and chippings – onto the footway in order to seal the surface and prolong its lifespan. The mix dries very quickly and pedestrians can usually walk over it within 20 to 30 minutes.
Work starts on Monday 26 October and is expected to be carried out over seven weeks on a rolling programme, subject to good weather conditions during the winter period.
The works are being undertaken by Kiely Brothers of Birmingham, who are using locally sourced site workers. The works are being managed by the council’s regeneration partner, ENGIE.

Locations due for resurfacing are:

Old Cleethorpe Road
