Balfour Beatty, on behalf of Herefordshire Council, are surface dressing 126 stretches of road (a total of 65 miles/106km) across the county. The work will take place over the six weeks from 21 May to end of June 2019.
Surface dressing is a coating of bitumen and stone that seals the road surface, improves its texture and extends its life. Any defects, such as pot holes, are fixed first. It’s a three-step process that is quicker than other road maintenance techniques, causing less disruption for residents and road users
They have published a map of sites, information about the process and information for businesses and residents on Herefordshire Council’s website at: https://www.herefordshire.gov.uk/info/200196/roads/723/herefordshire_road_investment/4
There is also a short video on our Twitter channel: https://twitter.com/HfdsStreets/status/1130776481490264064
Subject to the extent of works, a road closure will normally come into operation from 09.00 hours until 17.00 hours each day but in most cases, the work will be completed far sooner resulting in the road re-opening earlier, anything from a few hours to half a day sooner.
