Soon we’ll be seeing signs on our county highways advising: ‘Slow down: loose chippings’ but what exactly is the purpose of this type of road repair?

Here in Northamptonshire, the county council will soon be starting its ‘surface dressing’ programme.

Surface dressing involves hot tar being sprayed on to the road surface and overlaid by chippings which are rolled on to the surface. When the tar cools it sets and holds the chippings to the surface of the road.

It’s best suited to dry weather so tends to take place over the summer. This year’s programme starts on July 29.

Roads that have been identified as having early deterioration are treated in this way to stop any further, more extensive damage occurring.

The treatment seals and increases the texture of the surface of the road so that it is less susceptible to damage in the future. A good surface dressing treatment can last many years.

Surface dressing creates what are known as loose chippings, so traffic is slowed to 20mph to reduce the danger of partially embedded chippings flicking up.

Loose chippings are swept away within 24 hours of the initial dressing, and again within three days.

A heavy roller is used after initial treatment and the surface is usually fully embedded after about a week.
