Aggregate Industries has won a £6.5 million contract from Derbyshire County Council to carry out resurfacing work over the next 12 months.
The delivery will be throughout Derbyshire excluding Derby City area and will include resurfacing, traffic management, road studding and road markings (lining and associated works), covering schemes over £100,000.
Meanwhile, Kier has started the county’s annual surface dressing programme.
This investment in Derbyshire’s roads is part of a £58 million programme this year, and many other roads will be resurfaced. A full list of these roads will be available soon.
Councillor Kewal Singh Athwal, our Cabinet Member for Highways Assets and Transport, said “We know that keeping our roads and pavements in good condition is a top priority for local people so during May and June our contractors will be busy across the county.
“The warmer months are when we carry out our surface dressing programme as we need better weather conditions. Surface dressing helps to extend the life of a road surface and helps to prevent potholes.
“I’d like to thank residents and visitors to the county in advance for their patience and understanding while these improvement works take place.”
To make work more efficient the jobs have been grouped together so that all those in an area are carried out at around the same time.
