An extensive programme of ‘surface dressing’ road repairs are underway across Northamptonshire.

The work - which runs from today (May 19) through to mid-June, weather dependent - is being carried out on behalf of West Northamptonshire and North Northamptonshire Councils and provides a way of extending the life of highways.

Roads will be closed on the day of the surface dressing, the next day for sweeping and then a few days later for another sweep.
