Warning as resurfacing work starts

DRIVERS and residents are warned to watch out for delays when a major programme of road improvements across town gets under way next week.

Work to resurface more than 20 roads will be carried out between Tuesday, June 26, and Sunday, August 5, as part of Hartlepool Borough Council’s ongoing roads maintenance programme.

The work will be carried out by Tarmac, which will inform affected residents of the exact starting dates of the schemes to minimise disruption.

Each area will take around two days to complete with the old top layer of the road being planed off on the first day, and a new surface being laid the next day.

Iain Campbell, the council’s highways engineer, said: “Each scheme will take around two days.

“The existing road surface will be planed off on the first day and the new surface will be laid the following day.

“Where residential streets are involved, we will require residents to move their cars and other vehicles before the start of work each day.

“They will, however, be able to return overnight.

“We would like to take this opportunity to thank residents in advance for their co-operation and to apologise for any disruption which they may experience.”
