A number of roads will be closed and undergo treatment next month which North Somerset Council hopes will ‘prolong their lifespan and improve road safety’.
The council will start its micro asphalt programme in August, which aims to extend the life of the road and reduce the risk of skidding.
The work will begin on August 29, and road closures are planned. It is expected to take around three weeks to complete.
Woodborough Crescent in Winscombe, Wansbrough Road in Weston-super-Mare and Uphill Way in Uphill will all be refurbished as part of the scheme.
Manor Gardens, The Orchard, Beechwood Avenue, Bramley Close, The Orchard Close, Homefield and Homefield Close in Locking will also be treated.
The works are being carried out by Skanska on the council’s behalf at a cost of £475,000.
Executive member for highways Elfan Ap Rees said: “The work will take place under road closures and we’ll do everything we can to keep disruption to a minimum.”
