Surface dressing to begin in Harrogate: is your road included?

Surface dressing to begin in Harrogate: is your road included?

Published by The Stray FM News Team at 10:17am 18th April 2018.

Work to maintain and protect roads across Harrogate is due to start this Friday.

It is part of North Yorkshire County Council's annual programme to improve stretches of the county's 5,350 miles of roads.

After a cold winter, complaints have been raised about the number of potholes appearing on Harrogate's roads.

More than 70 miles of road will be surface dressed in the Harrogate area this year.

Among the stretches being treated are Harrogate bypass, Knaresborough bypass, Boroughbridge Road in Knaresborough and Ripon bypass.

North Yorkshire County Council has defended the use of surface dressing, describing it as 'a quick, efficient and cost-effective way of maintaining skid-resistant and waterproof road surfaces'

It involves spraying bitumen onto the road surface then covering it with a layer of chippings, extending the life of a road by up to ten years.

County Councillor Don Mackenzie, Executive Member for Highways, said:

"Surface dressing is comparatively low-cost at a fifth of the price of resurfacing.

"This means we can treat a much larger proportion of the road network each year, preventing the need for much more expensive work later.

"We know the process is unpopular with some drivers, mainly because of loose chippings, but the speed of the operation and its long-term benefits, as well as the short time for which motorists are inconvenienced, are important factors.

"It is important that traffic is allowed onto the new surface because chippings need traffic to fully push them into the road. However, it is also important that drivers keep to the speed limit to allow the surface to stabilise and to avoid damage to their vehicles. That is why we put in place a 20mph speed limit during the early life of the dressing."

Later this year, resurfacing work is due to take place in areas including Skipton Road, Otley Road and Pennypot Lane.

Is your road being fixed? Will it affect your commute to work?
