Roadworks will keep key workers moving in Rutland

Essential highway maintenance work is scheduled to take place throughout the week of Monday, April 20, as part of Rutland’s annual surface dressing programme.

Surface dressing is cost effective treatment to restore and preserve the quality of local roads. It involves applying a protective layer of bitumen and compressed stone chippings along sections of the highway network, which then helps to make the roads waterproof and keeps them in a good condition for longer.

This is important to prevent the onset of more costly and dangerous road damage, caused over time by water, winter weather and general wear and tear. It also helps to restore a level of friction to the surface, to make the roads safer for motorists by improving the vehicles’ resistance to skidding.
