E.R.Y.C. has announced a package of works due to be carried out as part of its footway maintenance programme.
The works are the latest stage of a £1 Million per year footway service contract that runs for two years.
This scheme is being carried out by PBS Construction (North East) Ltd and includes the following sites across Bridlington:
First to Eighth Avenue
The works will include patch repairs, ironwork replacement and/or adjustments, kerbing replacement and/or adjustment and slurry sealing of the footpath and all depending on suitable weather.
Meanwhile a record 34,998 potholes have been filled on the East Riding’s roads so far in 2018.
The Council’s highways maintenance team has repaired more potholes in the first 10 months of this year than in any other full year on record.
It is more than double the amount of potholes repaired four years ago.
More potholes have appeared on the area’s roads this year because of the long period of freezing weather we experienced last winter, when the ‘Beast from the East’ descended on the country.
Potholes are caused by wet and cold conditions, when water seeping into cracks in the road surface or into the soil beneath freezes, expands, then thaws, weakening the structure of the road.
Crews are out working on the roads across the East Riding every day, filling potholes and carrying out patching work on surfaces showing wear and tear.
The team also has an emergency crew on-call 24-hours a day, ready to repair the most dangerous potholes.
Another weapon in its arsenal is the Roadmaster, a specially-adapted lorry which can spray tar and chippings into a pothole to repair it in a matter of minutes.
