The works will comprise of sweeping the existing carriageway, laying the micro asphalt and once the material has hardened sufficiently, adjusting any items of ironwork (manhole covers, stop tap covers, gullies and so on) to the new level.

Councillor Barry Mellor, Cabinet Lead Member for Highways and Transport, said: “The works form part of Denbighshire County Council’s £4 million commitment to improving our road surfaces with this programme costing approximately £400,000.

“Works will be weather dependent and due to the nature of the work it will be necessary to put road closures and signed diversions in place. Generally, the laying of the micro asphalt will take only 1 to 2 days to complete with subsequent works being undertaken the same week or later in the month. A full road closure will be necessary to undertake the laying of the road surface to ensure it is completed quickly and safely.

“Local residents will receive a letter prior to the works commencing and advance signage will be placed on lamp posts with the actual dates.

"The council would like to thank residents in advance for their understanding during the duration of the works."
