Dorset Road Fix 2022 – micro-surfacing from 20 June

Micro-surfacing works are getting underway to help preserve more of Dorset Council’s road network.

a Dorset road half surfaced and half not surfaced
Halfway through surface treatment – with machine yet to pass over second half of road

The low-cost treatment is laid over the top of the current surface – filling in shallow cracks and holes – and helps protect the underlying road structure from water damage as well as adding reinforcement to the existing asphalt.

Due to the large equipment and number of vehicles used to carry out the work, roads will be closed for the treatment to be carried out.

Road closures will be from 8am to 5pm with a gateman available to address any queries.

Please look for advance notice signs which will be put out before the start of work and, to help work go smoothly, please move your vehicle off the road.

Road surfaces will be swept the day after treatment, with white lines replaced between three and five days after the work.

Any drain covers that are too low following the surfacing will be raised within three weeks after the work.

This season, Dorset Council Highways’ contractor Kiely will be carrying out the work.
