Work has started on a programme of micro asphalt work to maintain and keep North Lincolnshire’s roads safe.
Micro asphalt is a relatively new and economical solution to resurfacing roads showing the first signs of wear and tear, and only needs the very top surface treating to make it water-tight and help prevent further deterioration.
The material comprises mainly bitumen emulsion in liquid form, with stone added that dries to provide a new top surface.
Micro asphalt also fills minor surface imperfections, improves skid resistance and prolongs the lifespan of the road.
The work can only take place on dry roads so is subject to weather permitting.
Work is expected to finish by the end of July. The council has informed affected businesses. Advisory and warning signs are in place.
The work will take place in Scunthorpe, Barrow, Winterton, Goxhill and Crowle:
