RSTA technical course outlines how to Surface Dress a Road

A two-day courses providing detailed technical introduction to the theory and practice of surface dressing will be held by the Road Surface Treatments Association (RSTA) on 29-30th November 2018 at the Ridgeway Centre, Milton Keynes and on 4-5th December 2018 at the South Gloucestershire CC Broad Lane Depot, Bristol.

Surface dressing is a long established and proven highway maintenance technique involving the spray application of an emulsion bituminous binder onto a prepared road surface prior to the immediate application of aggregate chippings to ‘dress’ the binder.

The course will examine when and how to carry out surface dressing including selecting the correct surface dressing aggregates and binders, guidance on the associated industry standards and quality control testing. In addition, it will provide worked examples and practicing design open forums.

The course is CPD approved by the Chartered Institute for Highways and Transportation (CIHT) and the Institution for Highways Engineers (IHE).
