During the day all lanes will be open but there will be speed restrictions to allow the chipseal to set, and to protect vehicles travelling over newly laid chipseal.

Please watch this video​ which explains how to drive over newly laid chipseal, and why it’s important to follow traffic management instructions.

There will be increased noise levels while our team carry out chipsealing. We apologise in advance for any inconvenience this may cause.
