Dorset Council makes progress with road repairs

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

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.

In-situ recycling, surface dressing and resurfacing programmes of work are all currently underway across the council area as part of this year’s £16m investment in road maintenance.

To help encourage residents to choose active travel, micro-surfacing is being used to improve the condition of minor roads on the National Cycleway Network (NCN).
