Main Roads through Willaston are to be Resurfaced

Willaston and Rope Ward Councillor Brian Silvester has welcomed the news that two of the roads through Willaston are to be resurfaced. He said, “Along with the Parish Council I have been campaigning for Wistaston Road and Wybunbury Road  to be resurfaced. They are two of the main routes through the village and are heavily used. As a consequence  there are many potholes and much damage to the roads so the sooner the resurfacing is done the better. The roads are to be micro asphalted. Micro Asphalt surfacing is the application of a 25mm thick bitumen slurry over the existing surface to provide a new running surface.  It is designed to reseal the existing road surface, fill in the cracks and level out any divots to produce a smoother ride. Used mainly in the more populated areas of the Borough, any removed lines can be replaced with days of application. Laying the material is very weather dependent and is only applied in the dryer months.”
