Footway slurry sealing works to start
Footways in several parts of North East Lincolnshire are due to be resurfaced over the next few months.
A number of footways in Waltham, Immingham, Irby, Beelsby, Barnoldby, Brigsley and Ravendale 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 starts on Monday 2 December and is expected to be carried out over the next 12 weeks, 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.
