Micro-Surfacing Works – October 2015
Early October sees the return of Ringway to do more Micro-Surfacing works on our roads. This work will necessitate road closures with restricted access particularly whilst the micro-surfacing has been newly laid. There will also be parking restrictions to allow the whole road surface to be addressed. Be aware that the dates may vary slightly if weather interferes with the works.
- Chapel Road – Thursday October 1st – 6th, with the road closed for 4 working days, a diversion will be in place, access to driveways restricted at times, road open throughout the weekend . This will affect bus routes – enquiries are being made about the effect this may have so come back and visit later, we will post any updates on this page. Immediately prior to the surfacing works Anglian Water will also be undertaking works between 28th – 29th September – Chapel Road will remain open but with traffic light controls past the works.
- Chapel Lane – Wednesday October 7th, road closed for 2 days – diversion in place, access to driveways restricted at times.
- Queens Road – Wednesday October 7th, road closed for 2 days – as Chapel Lane above.
- New Church Road – Wednesday October 7th, road closed for 2 days – as Chapel Lane above. This will affect school traffic – a letter has already been sent out to parents from the school.
What is Micro-Surfacing?
It is a thin, tough layer of asphalt emulsion blended with finely crushed stone for traction. This is a cost-effective method to renew the road surface and seal minor cracks and other irregularities.
The end of October may see slightly heavier traffic than usual on the B1508 Colchester Road as it becomes a diversion route for traffic normally using the Sudbury Road in Bures.
