Dear Resident/Occupier

IMPORTANT – High Friction Surfacing Works

We are writing to let you know about the High Friction Surfacing works due to take place in your area and to provide you with some information and guidance about what will happen during the works to enable you to plan accordingly.

General information

As you may be aware, from April 2013 Island Roads, working in partnership with the Isle of Wight Council, commenced a huge project to upgrade and maintain the Island’s highways network.  The majority of this work is being completed in the first seven years of the programme (2013-2020).

  1. In an emergency

We work closely with the emergency services to inform them of works taking place across the Island and will assist the emergency services to safely pass through the site, should they need to access the works area in the event of an emergency.

  1. Bus services

During the surfacing works, bus stops located within the area of the road closure will not be in operation.  Please use an alternative bus stop outside of the road closure area.  If you are not sure which stop to use, contact Southern Vectis on 01983 827000.
