Defective materials used on sixteen East Riding roads

Sixteen roads in East Yorkshire are having to be resurfaced after defective materials were used.

Six of the roads are undergoing work for a third time, according to East Riding Council.

The council said materials were supplied by Cemex, and a decision has been made to use a different supplier until the problem is rectified.

Cemex has apologised for the disruption, and has disputed the claim it supplied material to all 16 sites.

Eight roads will be repaired under warranty at no cost to the council. It has not been decided who will pay for the remaining eight.

A meeting will be held at the beginning of June to discuss the eight roads no longer under warranty.

The authority used contractors to carry out the roadworks with materials supplied by Cemex.

East Riding Council could not confirm how much had been spent on the roads or the estimated cost of repair work.

Work has been carried out for a third time at King Street, Cottingham.

Five sites which need to be resurfaced for a third time are Tower Hill in Hessle, A165 Coniston, A165 Skirlaugh, Hengate in Beverley and Keldgate mini roundabout in Beverley.
