GDC Road Sealing Underway

The road sealing programme is currently taking place around the Grey District with Council advising that there will be disruption in some areas.

Crews are back at work after the Christmas holiday break and with the warm summer months, it's the best time for resurfacing. Daylight hours are longer and temperatures and dry air ideal for new seal sticking to the road surface.


Motorists are asked to help by slowing down and keeping to the temporary speed limits.


Driving at the posted speed limits helps bed in the new seal and prevents stone chips flying into windscreens.
