News Article Date:

The rollout of Warrnambool  City Council’s $950,000 annual road resealing program will begin on Monday, November 28.

Stage One of the program will see work carried out at 128 sites around Warrnambool, Bushfield and Allansford.

Stage Two of the program, covering a further 94 locations in Warrnambool, will begin on January 30 and be completed in early March, 2018.

“The road reseal program is a being delivered in conjunction with Corangamite Shire Council,” Warrnambool Mayor Cr Kylie Gaston said.

“Working with a neighbouring municipality has allowed Council to achieve better value for money.

“It means we are able to include more roads in the reseal program.”

Director City Infrastructure Scott Cavanagh said bitumen resealing work was an essential road maintenance activity that protected and extended the life of road pavements.

"We apply a coat of bitumen then cover this with aggregate to produce a new waterproof wearing course.

“Council is making extensive use of polymer-modified bitumen this year to improve aggregate retention and fill in any cracks in the existing surface.

“The new seal also restores the surface texture and improves grip.”

Council aims to resurface bitumen seals every 10 to 15 years depending on wear and deterioration of the surface.
