Waterloo Road in Hillside, Southport is getting a new road surface dressing this week (Mon-Fri 20th-24th August 2012).

Bitumen emulsion is sprayed onto the road using a large spray tanker, chippings are then spread over the bitumen using a self propelled chipping spreader followed behind by a spray tanker.

The chippings are then compacted into the bitumen by two or more rollers following closely behind.

Residents are asked not to park their vehicles on the road or verge when work starts.
