The schedule of surface dressing treatment for Horsham district roads this week (Monday June 3 to Friday June 7) has been released 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.

The work makes the road safer because it improves the skid resistance of the surface.

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

Surface dressing will take place between Monday June 3 and Friday June 7 subject to weather conditions, in the following locations:

• Cowfold Road, between Bolney roundabout and Foxhole Lane, Bolney;

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

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

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

• Orltons Lane, between The Mount and the Surrey county boundary, Rusper;

• Burnt House Lane/Langhurst Lane, between Rusper Road and The Mount, Rusper;

• Ifield Wood, between Rusper Road and Charlwood Road, Rusper;

• The Mount/Hillybarn Lane, between Langhurst Lane and Ifield Wood, Rusper;

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