The schedule of surface dressing treatment to roads this week has been announced by West Sussex County Council.

Surface dressing involves spraying a coating of bitumen on the road, followed by one or more layers of hard stone chippings.

Traffic can be allowed to run on the new surface almost immediately – avoiding lengthy closures and disruption.

Surface dressing will take place between Tuesday May 28 and Friday May 31, subject to weather conditions, in the following locations:

• Newpound, between Durbans Road and A272 Billingshurst Road, Wisborough Green;

• A281 Guildford Road, between Loxwood Road and Church Street, Rudgwick;

• Christ’s Hospital, between King Edward Road and Tower Hill, Horsham;

• Cripplegate Lane, between Worthing Road and Cedar Drive, Southwater;

• Coolham Road, between Pondtail Farm and Buck Barn, Shipley;

• Steyning Road, between Needs Bridge and Jolesfield Cottages; West Grinstead and Partridge Green;

• Spronketts Lane, between Long House Lane and Cuckfield Lane, Slaugham;

• A281 Brighton Road, between Park Way and Birchen Bridge, Horsham;

• Elm Grove, Horsham;

• Harwood Road, between Horsham Agates roundabout and Falklands Drive, Horsham;

• Crawley Road, between Roffey roundabout and Forest Road, Horsham;

• Tower Road, between Crawley Road and Forest Road, Colgate and Faygate; and

• Newdigate Road, between Rusper High Street and the Surrey county boundary, Rusper.

The work complements Operation Watershed, the County Council’s initiative to make communities more resilient to extreme weather.
