Resurfacing Programme Frequently Asked Questions

PRS is used on roads that have severe irregularities and / or structural problems. The technique involves removing some or all of the existing surface and using a machine to lay new hot material on to the carriageway, which is then rolled to compact it and give a smooth running surface. PRS results in improved skid resistance and a smoother ride for road users, and also means the road surface should require less maintenance in the future.
