A five-week programme of Angus roadwork is underway.
The project will see around 50 kilometres of carriageway at 36 locations across the district undergo surface dressing, with a warning to drivers to take care on the newly-treated routes.
Surface dressing involves applying chippings to a road surface coated in bitumen emulsion in an effort to seal the surface, improves texture and prolong the life of the road.
“Notices will be put in place locally in advance of work starting,” said a council spokesman.
“If it is taking place where you live, we request that you do not leave your car parked on the road or footways when the work is due to take place.
“Please drive slowly when travelling through work sites and stay within the speed limits. This is to protect our employees, yourself and other road users, as well as your vehicle.
New surfaces can generally be driven within 15 minutes after completion but, depending on traffic flows, it can be up to six months before the surface achieves its final visual and structural characteristics.
The spokesman added: “Clearly, this work is carried out using heavy plant and machinery. Take the utmost care around work areas and please do not allow your children to play near this equipment, whether or not work is in progress.
Location details are available on the council website.
