A number of roads in the Alfreton area are set to benefit from repairs during September and October.

The work – targeting a total of 124 roads across Derbyshire – will use micro-asphalt to repair damage and seal the surfaces ahead of the colder weather.

The work – carried out by Kiely Brothers on behalf of Derbyshire County Council – will take place in two phases.

The first phase will see micro-asphalt laid by hand, while the second phase will target larger areas and use machinery.

The first phase of the work will get underway on Wednesday (September 6) and will take place on the following Alfreton area roads:

Sitwell Villas, Morton

Maltby Avenue, Morton

Councillor Charlotte Cupit, cabinet member for highways assets and transport at Derbyshire County Council, said: “Our £1m micro-asphalt programme will help us to get weather prepared for the colder, wintry weather by sealing existing road surfaces against the worst of the rain and frost.

“This is part of our ongoing three-year £120m investment in the county’s roads and pavements.

“The process is fast, helping to minimise delays for local road users.

“We’ve carefully identified the 124 roads for repair, using feedback from residents and our own surveys, to make sure we target our resources in the most effective way.

“The new surfacing will be much smoother and offer improved skid resistance, providing a safety benefit for local road users.

“I’d like to thank people for their patience while we complete these important repairs.”
