A programme of surface dressing on roads across Richmondshire will start this month.

The work by North Yorkshire County Council aims to prolong the life of treated roads.

Nigel Smith, head of highway operations, said: “The safety of the public, along with our employees and contractors is paramount.

“Therefore, in all the highways work we undertake during the current Covid-19 restrictions we ensure that guidance on social distancing is observed.

“A consequence of ensuring social distancing is that there will not be letter drops to properties in areas where surface dressing is to take place, but information boards will be erected in advance in locations where work is to take place.”

A schedule of roads to be treated in the surface dressing programme is below.

The work is subject to weather conditions, so the dates below are subject to change. [kofi]
