East Riding Council starts surface dressing programme

Work is underway on a £2.3million road improvement scheme across the East Riding.

Over the next five months, the highways crews will upgrade road surfaces at 207 locations. Around 13,000 tonnes of stone chippings will be laid on 67 miles of road, from A roads to unclassified routes.

This year’s surface dressing programme has been extended to incorporate some urban sites that were delayed from last year due to the COVID 19 pandemic, said the council.

The process alsi involves the recycling of more than 7,000 tonnes of chippings and saves around £60,000 of council tax payers’ money.

Adam Holmes, head of infrastructure & facilities at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “We have a trusted track record of delivering innovative schemes to help our residents and businesses. This scheme allows us to continue to improve roads across the East Riding which are in need of repair.”
