Road surfacing works are planned just outside Brigg on the A18 this coming Saturday, June 15 - between Castlethorpe and Forest Pines.
North Lincolnshire Council  began its yearly surface covering programme on roads throughout North Lincolnshire on Monday (June 10).
The council says it aims to keep disruption to a minimum and a range of traffic managements will be in place. Only one of the roads will need to be closed completely. Whilst the programme of works is taking place, motorists are asked to:
*    Ensure vehicles are not left parked on roads that will be treated
*    Avoid deliveries during the proposed work times
*    Keep your speed low on recently treated roads to avoid loose chippings damaging other vehicles
*    Never overtake on newly treated roads

Coun Nigel Sherwood (Brigg and Wolds), Cabinet member for Highways and Neighbourhood Services, said: “The council is significantly investing in North Lincolnshire's road network. Additional funding in excess of £2m has been made available in this current year and this project is the first to be carried out.
"The council needs to carry out this work to help keep North Lincolnshire’s roads safe. Please be patient while the works take place and take care on newly treated roads. We aim to keep disruption to a minimum and apologise in advance for any inconvenience the works might cause.”

Surface dressing is used to seal the road to prevent water getting into the foundations. It also restores skid resistance, which increases the safety of the road and enhances the road appearance. Once this process is completed, traffic can be allowed to run on the surface almost immediately, which means that there are no lengthy closures or disruption.
