Highway Improvement Programmes
Flintshire County Council will start work on a highway surface dressing
programme in June which will help improve the condition of County’s rural
roads. The £500,000 programme will see the improvement of almost 20 rural roads
or sections of road across Flintshire.
In addition, a £250,000 programme of carriageway patching which provides
permanent repairs to those roads which do not require a full resurfacing
treatment will also start in June.
Both of these contracts are funded from the Council’s highway maintenance
budget bringing together a total investment in the local road network to over
£2.5m in the current financial year.
All roads in the County have been inspected to assess their condition following
the winter months by staff from the Streetscene service. These inspections have
ensured that the roads in most need of repair receive the attention they
As in previous years, during the period of the work, temporary road closure
orders and diversions will be required for the safety of both the contractors
carrying out the work and for road users. Advanced signs will be placed at each
location, informing people when the works are due to commence and the Council
would appreciate the patience of the travelling public and local residents
during the period of the work.
Details of both the surface dressing and patching programmes will be available
on the Council’s website later this week.
Councillor Bernie Attridge, Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Environment
said: “This is the second major announcement of investment into the County’s
road in the last few weeks and again highlights the importance of a well
maintained highway network to Flintshire County Council.’’
