Update: due to weather conditions, the work will now start on Thursday 11th October.

Derby City Council is starting a programme of road surface treatments on Monday 8th October, using a process called ‘Micro asphalt’ to treat 31,000sqm of roads across the city.

This treatment is done in the lead-up to winter in order to seal the road surface against possible water and frost damage, with the added benefit of reducing the likelihood of potholes. In anticipation of icy conditions, it improves road safety by restoring skid resistance.

The roads being treated are:

Area Ward Start point Finish point
Ridgeway Chellaston Second Avenue Woodlands Lane
Second Avenue Chellaston Woodlands Lane Ridgeway
Simcoe Leys Chellaston Wakami Crescent End
Wakami Crescent Chellaston Maple Drive Maple Drive
Stavely Close Chellaston Sinfin Avenue End
Woodthorne Avenue Chellaston Jubilee Road End
Sherwood Street Abbey Woods Lane End
John Berrysford Close Chaddesden Carol Crescent End
Field Lane Chaddesden Curzon Road Wood Road
Welwyn Avenue Chellaston Jubilee Road End
Scarborough Rise Derwent Old Mansfield Road Langdale Drive
Village Street Normanton Newgidate Street Stenson Road
Randolph Road Normanton Brunswick Street Derby Lane
Crewe Street Normanton Pear Tree Road Stanton Street
Dryden Street Normaton Kitchener Avenue Caxton Street
Weston Rise Chellaston Woodgate Drive Woodlands Road
Byng Avenue Normanton Underhill Avenue End
Stoney Flatts Crescent Chaddesden Wood Road End
Simcoe Leys Chellaston Wakami Crescent End

Kier Highways Services will complete the work on behalf of the Council. The team will work every day including weekends from 8.00am – 8.00pm (except on busy weekday roads, where work will be restricted to off-peak hours).

Derby City Council has already notified residents whose roads are being treated, and Kier will also send letters a day or two before they plan to start work. Should weather conditions or other circumstances affect the progress of the work, the advance notification signs placed around the work locations will be updated to inform residents and road users of the revised dates.

For safety reasons, temporary traffic management measures will be in place in the form of road closures. Roads will be closed to through traffic although access will still be available for residents. We ask for your co-operation while the work is in progress, as road users may experience delays.

In order to complete the work quickly and effectively, we ask that no vehicles are parked on the roads on the day of the work. Any vehicles on the road could prevent work being carried out. Please take care when using any of the surrounding roads.

Bin collections will continue as normal. If the work falls on your bin day, please leave your bins out as normal and the crews will collect them as quickly as possible.

Any manholes and road gullies that sit low in the road after the micro-asphalt surface treatment will be adjusted to the correct level. Road markings will be replaced roughly two weeks after the project is finished.

We appreciate everyone’s patience while we carry out this programme of work.
