The IHE East Midlands Branch would like to invite you to this online event on Tuesday 10th January 2023 by Gerald Byrne, National Specification Manager at WJ. 

Retexturing is a reliable cost effective, environmentally friendly surface treatment which will extend the life of your road asset, and is therefore a valuable process when adopted and used as part of a highway authorities asset management strategy.

Improves Safety
Post treatment, retexturing will immediately make unsafe stretches of carriageway safe. The process restores macro and micro-texture to road surfaces stopping skidding accidents and incidents.

Reduces Costs
Retexturing is a cost effective method to extend the surface life of a road. In comparison to resurfacing it can cost as little as 10%, whilst still achieving fantastic results.

Lower Carbon
Retexturing is a low carbon alternative to the replacement of a high psv surface course, only creating 5-10% of the carbon that a typical resurfacing scheme would generate.

You will leave the CPD session understanding:

  • What retexturing is
  • The technical guidance for reference
  • Retexturing techniques
  • How long retexturing lasts
  • A comparison of retexturing compared to resurfacing in terms of cost & carbon
  • Example case studies
