Road surface dressing programme to start in Aberdeenshire

Drivers in Aberdeenshire have been urged to watch out for loose chippings and vulnerable road crews as the a new surface dressing programme gets under way.

This year’s works have been reduced in scale due to Covid-19, and will only take place across Garioch, Banff and Buchan and Formartine.

Mandatory 20mph speed limits will be enforced on areas where loose chippings are being used in surface dressing works.

Phillip McKay, the head of roads at Aberdeenshire Council, said: “Warning signs advising of surface dressing works are always erected prior to work starting, and remain in place for several days after the work has been carried out.

“While it sometimes may appear that a road is clear and suitable for normal use, there may still be loose chippings to watch out for, so I would urge road users to always adhere to the site signs and drive at the appropriate speed.”

Mr McKay added: “We appreciate that working on the road network can cause inconvenience to users, but I would ask that you bear with us as we carry out these essential repairs, which deliver long term benefits to road condition.”

The programme will start later this month and continue until late August.
