Surface dressing in preparation for Winter

In preparation for winter, surface dressing is performed throughout the summer months and is applied to the road in dry, moderate conditions.

Its aim is to seal the road, to stop water ingression through cracks which may cause pot holes and damage the makeup of the road. This operation also enhances skid resistance. 

Surface dressing has recently taken place in Counties Antrim, Derry and Tyrone
