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.
