Footway slurry sealing works begin

Footways in several parts of North East Lincolnshire are due to be resurfaced during the next few weeks.

A number of footways in Grimsby, Aylesby, and Immingham will be resurfaced 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 started on Monday 16 April 2018 and is expected to take six weeks to complete, subject to good weather conditions.

The works are being undertaken by Kiely Brothers of Birmingham, who are using locally sourced site workers, and are being managed by the Council’s partner, ENGIE, who would like to apologise for any disruption that may be caused.
