Dorset Road Fix 2022 – in-situ recycling

Dorset Council highways contractor Colas Ltd will be carrying out deep in-situ recycling on minor roads in the council area that are in the worst structural condition.

Road damage on Bradford Road, a rural road in Longburton

These roads have extensive defects, with uneven surfaces, sunken areas, potholes and cracking.

In-situ recycling involves breaking down the existing carriageway to its foundations and reusing the existing material by adding cement and bitumen emulsion to strengthen the structural foundation of the road. A new surface course is then laid.

This recycling method is done on site – simultaneously pulverising the existing carriageway and mixing it with new material – and, due to the size of the machinery used, roads need to be closed for the work.

Closures will be from 7am to 5pm and will last overnight to ensure the new cement-bound layers cure before the surface is laid.

In-situ recycling has many benefits including reusing material already in place and creating minimal waste, but it does require consistent dry weather to undertake the works.

The programme includes some weekend working but no working on Bank Holidays. Please check advance signage on each site for the most up to date information.

These timeframes include preparation works and additional time in case of bad weather.
