CAMBS County Council is about to begin a £2 million project to ensure hundreds of kilometers of Cambridgeshire roads are maintained and improved.
The surface dressing programme, using a thin film of bitumen and stone chippings, keeps the road surface in good condition and improves safety for all road users.
The technique costs around 20 percent of conventional asphalt resurfacing, enabling a far greater length of road to be treated from within the available financial resources.
Starting from May 8 work will be carried out in all areas of Cambridgeshire (full list available on request).
Drivers are being asked to be aware of the work and to allow extra time for their journey if necessary. In some areas traffic management measures will be in place and some localised short-time road closures are possible.
