Carriageway surface treatment programme March / April 2024

10:48 am, Wednesday, 20th March 2024 - 4 weeks ago


The carriageway surface treatment programme is due to start on Tuesday 26 March and is expected to be completed by Friday 5 April, subject to weather conditions.

This programme of work includes locations undergoing micro-asphalt treatment. Micro-asphalt is a mixture of bitumen emulsion, small aggregate and cement. It is a dual application process, with the first application regulating the existing surface and the second application giving the final surface. This treatment will seal the surface, improve surface texture and prolong the life of the road for many years.

Once laid, the material will remain wet for 15 – 30 minutes, depending on the temperature and humidity. When first laid the material is brown in colour and as it sets it turns to a dark grey/black. Vehicles can generally run on the surface within 30 minutes of the treatment being completed, though it may take longer for the material to set depending on the weather conditions.

To allow the works to be completed and to ensure the safety of those completing the works, a full road closure will be in place between 7:30am and 6pm each day. Works may not take the full day to complete, depending on the length of the street, but once complete, the road will be reopened as soon as possible.

The following streets are scheduled to be included in the programme of works:

  • Carnarvon Avenue, between Laceby Road and Gloucester Avenue – 27 March
  • Trinity Street, full length of road – 27 March
  • Kesgrave Street, between Cleethorpes Road and Riby Road – 27 March
  • Hope Street, between Oxford Street junction and Casablanca access – 27 March
  • North Street, full length of road – 27 March
  • South View, full length of road – 27 and 28 March
  • Richardson Close, full length of road – 27 and 28 March
  • Priors Close, full length of road – 28 March
  • Margaret Place, full length of road – 28 March
  • Pretymen Crescent, between Margaret Place and 36 Pretymen Crescent – 28 March
  • Barcroft Street, between Brereton Avenue and Harrington Street – 2 and 3 April
  • Tiverton Street, between Brereton Avenue and Harrington Street – 2 and 3 April
  • Lovett Street, between Freeston Street and Harrington Street – 2 and 3 April

  • Moorland Drive, full length of road – 3, 4 and 5 April
  • Thesiger Street, between Kent Street and Garibaldi Street – 4 and 5 April

Please note, on-street parking will be suspended to allow the works to take place. Please support the contractor by not parking vehicles on the carriageway or footpath in the works location to ensure a safe working area can be maintained and to avoid delaying the works. Access for emergency vehicles will be maintained at all times.

Advanced warning signs will be in place to advise road users of the upcoming works dates.

To avoid the build-up of loose materials on the highway, the contractor will return to sweep up loose materials after a few days. People are asked to move their vehicles from the road if they see the road sweeper return to allow as much excess material to be collected as possible.

The council, Equans, and the contractor Kiely Bros would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience this may cause.
