Cousley Wood Road, Wadhurst - Surface Dressing
What works are taking place?
We will be carrying out surface dressing works on B2100 Cousley Wood Road, Wadhurst from Balaclava Lane to Monks Lane.
Work will involve spraying bitumen binder onto a dry road surface. We then spread stone chippings and roll the surface to embed the stones.
Following works, advisory 20mph speed limits are put in place. This is to protect road users from loose chippings.
This type of work provides a safer, non-skid road surface. It also seals and waterproofs the road, extending the life of the road by 10 years.
