ROAD resurfacing across the county will resume once again after the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

‘Dorset Road Fix 2022’ will enter its next phase of road resurfacing from June 6th as part of a £16million highway maintenance project throughout the council area.

The maintenance is designed to prolong the life of roads by coating them with a waterproof seal that also increases skid resistance. Dorset Highways’ annual road maintenance programme includes a mixture of surface dressing as well as patching, micro-surfacing, road preservation and resurfacing. Around 446,000m2 of road surfaces will be restored this year.

With main routes starting to become busier in the summer months, the council will begin to work in more residential areas.

To allow this work to take place safely, the area of the road being worked on will be closed. Daytime road closures are 9am to 4pm and night work is usually from 7pm to 6am.
