Roads in Bourne, Grantham, Holbeach and Louth to be resurfaced in £500,000 project

More than 50 residential roads across the county will re-surfaced as part of a £500,000 project.

Lincolnshire County Council has announced the roads in Bourne, Grantham, Holbeach, Louth and Branston will getting a new efficient and effective micro-asphalt surface treatment over the coming weeks.

The six week project to lay this surfacing – which is designed for use in residential areas where there is slower moving traffic – will start on Monday, April 8, and is due to last for six weeks, depending on the weather.

Coun Richard Davies, executive member for highways, said:Micro-asphalt surface treatment is a preventative measure that seals in the existing road surface. This improves the road texture, skid-resistance and helps water evaporate more easily, reducing the likelihood of potholes forming.

“The work involves applying a base and top layer of bitumen to the existing road surface. The treatment acts as liquid when first applied but it quickly dries within an hour and is then ready for traffic.

“It’s a quick, clean process that greatly improves a road surface with minimal disruption.

“Each job typically only takes a few hours and, once settled, provides a durable surface that can prolong the life of a road by up to ten years.”

During the works, there will be a period where the newly laid surface will not be able to be driven on – usually be for around 60 minutes after the job is completed depending on the weather conditions.

After the treatment, loose stones may remain on the road surface for a period of time and temporary road signs will be used to advise road users to be careful.

Iron works will be lifted, and road markings replaced after the final sweep has taken place, which can be a couple of weeks after the works. Where needed, temporary signs are put in place reminding the public that road markings have been removed.
