Major road resurfacing programme starts in Derbyshire

Published: 30 June 2022

More than 110 roads across Derbyshire will be resurfaced over the coming year.

The work starts in mid-July, with 6 roads in the north west and north east of the county.

In addition, contractors are just finishing the surface dressing programme, where more than 80 roads have been improved since May. Surface dressing is a treatment used on roads that are in a good condition, to protect and prolong their life by sealing and waterproofing the road.

And work has just started on our micro-asphalt programme, with more than 90 roads being improved. Micro-asphalt is where a thin surface is mixed in a lorry, laid on top of the existing road surface, and then rolled, to extend the life of the road.

Cabinet Member for Highways Assets and Transport, Councillor Kewal Singh Athwal said:

“We’ve made great progress already this year with improving roads across the county and I’ve been to see several of the jobs in progress.

“Altogether this year we will be improving parts of almost 300 roads, which will help get our network in much better shape for all those who use it.

“There will be some delays to road users and inconvenience to those who live locally, for which we apologise in advance.”

To make work more efficient the jobs have been grouped together, so that all those in an area are carried out around the same time.  

Find out which roads have already been improved, or are due to be improved.

More information on the exact times and dates are on the One Network website. All work could be delayed slightly due to poor weather.
