Road re­seal­ing

Taranaki Daily News - - News -

Mo­torists are be­ing urged to take care as the Strat­ford District Coun­cil be­gins its an­nual re­seal­ing work. The coun­cil re­seals the road each sum­mer as it needs hot weather for the mix­ture to set. The re­seal­ing process usu­ally takes about five days. Streets be­ing re­sealed dur­ing the first stage of the project in­clude Or­lando St be­tween Lear St and Celia St, Or­lando St be­tween Romeo St and the rail­way cross­ing, Ariel St be­tween Pem­broke Rd and Sey­ton St and Ulysses St. Ve­hi­cles trav­el­ling in these ar­eas are asked to re­duce their speed to avoid the risk of the re­seal­ing chip be­ing flicked up from the road sur­face. Prop­er­ties af­fected by stage one of the re­seal­ing work will have re­ceived no­ti­fi­ca­tion from coun­cil con­trac­tors In­fra­max or Hig­gins. Roads re­quire re­seal­ing for a num­ber of rea­sons in­clud­ing when cracks or pot­holes start to ap­pear, or they be­come slip­pery. The se­cond stage of ur­ban re­seal­ing will be un­der­taken in early March. Any­one with ques­tions or is­sues is wel­come to phone the Strat­ford District Coun­cil ser­vice cen­tre 24 hours a day on (06) 765 6099.
