Case Study

Surface Dressing in Sheepwash

surface dressing of road at Sheepwash with traffic cones

Sheepwash Parish Council received two funding allocations, totalling £1152.86 in order to carry out works on the road from Sheepwash Bridge to Highampton.

Work was undertaken to patch surface dress minor surface defects along over a mile length of carriageway.  These defects were identified during a site visit between the Road Warden, the Neighbourhood Highway Officer and County Councillors.

The road is the main link to the village of Sheepwash from Highampton, where the main road to Hatherleigh and Holsworthy is accessed.  The road has a limited number of vehicle movements during off-peak periods, so the works were undertaken during this to minimise disruption, following an appropriate risk assessment on the day.

The work was undertaken by the Road Warden and a group of community volunteers.
