Highways works programme 19/20   Opens new window

This programme covers 2019/2020 and was updated quarterly. All dates were indicative only and subject to change.

Surface Dressing Programme 2021

Our highways teams will begin their annual road resurfacing programme in North West Leicestershire on 19 April and work their way around the county throughout the summer.

Surface dressing provides the road with an additional protective layer, by sealing the surface with bitumen and stone chippings. The bitumen layer prevents water and air penetrating the layer underneath, while the stone chippings increase the texture of the road surface, helping with skid resistance.

This is vital work to prevent damage to our roads, surface dressing is the most cost effective way to prevent pot holes forming during the harsher winter months. The programme this year will focus mainly on our rural road network so that the workforce can safely maintain social distancing and limit working in busy locations.

Below is the current schedule of works, the work is dependent on warm temperatures and dry weather helping the chippings stick to the road so is subject to change. We appreciate resident's patience with us as we complete these works as soon as possible, advanced signing will be erected at the sites and residents and businesses will be notified prior to work commencing.
