Surface dressing programme 2024/25

Surface dressing vehicle*Update - 16 July - surface dressing programme for 2024/25 now complete*

The following table lists essential carriageway surface dressing works which will be programmed to be delivered this financial year 2024/25 by Shropshire Council.

Surface dressing is a quick, efficient and cost-effective way of preventing potholes, maintaining skid-resistance and waterproofing road surfaces. It forms a major part of our annual road maintenance programme, and is being carried out alongside other preventative and reactive maintenance work.

Surface dressing involves applying and rolling aggregate ‘chippings’ onto a bitumen binder. It will seal the surface, improve surface texture and prolong the life of the road by many years.

Surface dressing vehicleThese sites has been identified via a combination of local engineering judgment and asset management data as being in need of essential maintenance.
