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.
