Surface Dressing 1st July - 13th July

Surface dressing will take place on a number of roads from 1st July – 13th July. Surface dressing is a preventative treatment to prolong the life of a road and is an essential part of Dorset Councils road maintenance strategy. Road will be cleaned using a sweeper a day prior, the area will then a controlled using convoy working or short-term closure with localised diversion during the works.

In rural areas the work will be carried out 6am to 5pm and in urban areas 8.30am – 4pm. Surface dressing can only be carried out when the road is dry. When it rains the work has to stop and dates will change so please look out for the information signs placed on site two days before the works.
