Second phase of road surface treatment rolled out

3:29 pm, Thursday, 19th August 2021 - 3 years ago

General

A number of roads will be improved across North East Lincolnshire as the second phase of the annual programme of surface treatment starts.

Works are starting on Tuesday 31 August and it is expected that all locations will be completed by Tuesday 7 September, subject to weather conditions.

The process involves laying two layers of bitumen emulsion, small aggregate, and cement over the road surface.

This process seals the existing surface from water, improves the surface texture and extends the life of the road.

Once the surface treatment has been completed, vehicles can generally run on the surface within 30 minutes.

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 on the day of the works. 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.

Residents and businesses affected by the works will receive a letter in advance of the works with further information and instructions.

Advanced warning signs will be erected on site advising of the works. On the day of the works, on street parking will be temporarily suspended to allow the works to take place.

The works will be managed and overseen by North East Lincolnshire Council’s regeneration partner, ENGIE, with contractor Kiely Bros. carrying out the works.

North East Lincolnshire Council, ENGIE and Kiely Bros. would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused by the works.
