Work has started on a £10 million resurfacing programem across Derbyshire, the counil has said.
Over the next year parts of more than 325 roads will be resurfaced or surface dressed. During March and April this year our highways workers and an external contractor have been busy getting these roads ready to be resurfaced or surface dressed by filling in any potholes and fixing any defects.
Derbyshire County Council’s Designate Cabinet Member for Highways Assets and Transport, Councillor Kewal Singh Athwal said: “I’m delighted that this major programme of work is about to start. The £10m we will spend on resurfacing and surface dressing is part of the £40 million we announced we’d spend on our roads last year.
“Improving the roads is a major priority for the council, and this programme of improvements is just a start. Over the coming year we will also be carrying out work on pavements, drains , bridges and retaining walls. Our own teams have done much of the prep work needed, and we are using contractors to do the actual resurfacing and surface dressing.”
To make work more efficient the jobs have been grouped together, so that all those in an area are carried out around the same time.
