HOWEY Lane Frodsham is set to be closed for two days from tomorrow (Tuesday June 23) to enable micro asphalt surface treatment work to take place.
The closure is necessary for safety reasons to enable surface treatment work and will be carried out by Cheshire West and Chester Council.
Micro asphalt surface treatment is a road maintenance process which involves laying a thin layer over the top of the existing road to seal the surface and restore grip, thereby extending the active lifespan of the road.
Micro asphalt cures quickly and can usually be driven on less than an hour after application. Its ability to reshape and re-profile existing surfaces ensures minor defects, such as small potholes and cracks, are sealed to stop water getting in to cause further damage.
On average, micro asphalt extends the ‘life expectancy’ of a road by five to seven years. It as has a much-reduced environmental impact compared to standard resurfacing techniques as it is a non-polluting, cold-applied, zero-emissions material.
