Bage Way and Robertson Way in Shrewsbury to be surface dressed in June
Two Shrewsbury roads are set to close for a short time in June while surface dressing work is carried out
The work on Bage Way and Roberston Way will be carried out between Thursday 15 and Saturday 17 June, but only one road will be closed at any given time. Three days have been allowed for the work but it’s likely to be completed more quickly than this.
The work will be carried out between 9.30am and 4pm, and while each road is closed a signed diversion will be in place.
People are thanked for their patience and understanding while this important work is carried out.
Surface dressing is a quick, efficient and cost-effective way of protecting a road, preventing potholes, maintaining skid-resistance and waterproofing road surfaces. It forms a major part of the council’s annual road maintenance programme and is being carried out alongside other preventative and reactive maintenance work.
Surface dressing involves applying and rolling aggregate ‘chippings’ onto a bitumen binder.
It will seal the surface, improve surface texture and prolong the life of the road by many years.
