Work to repair roads affected by hot weather conditions earlier this year will get underway over the next two weeks, according to the Isle of Wight Council.
In a statement, the authority said: "During two periods of hot weather in May and July, several roads which had recently been 'surface dressed' by contractors Kiely Brothers became sticky as the binding material had softened. Following investigations it was found that the material used had become unstable during the hot weather with some of it coming to the surface.
"As part of the repair programme, the binding material will be stripped off using high-pressured water jets.
"No closures will be required during the works, although there will be some delays on roads where the repairs are being carried out.
"Peter Hayward, Isle of Wight Council manager for highways and transport said: "The council and its contractors have worked closely together to investigate why we had these problems with some roads during the hot weather conditions. We delayed the remedial work to avoid conflicting with the heavier traffic flows during the summer season.
"Kiely Brothers have accepted liability for the material failure and will be carrying out the repair work at their own expense. Again we apologise for the disruption caused when these problems arose."
"Eight roads have been prioritised for repairs and these will be completed by the end of October.
"The roads that will be repaired are Sandown Road in Newport, Cowes Road/Newport Road from Horsebridge Hill to Northwood, Briddlesford Road, Brading Downs Road, Quarr Hill, Sandown Road in Bembridge, Bowcombe Road in Shorwell and Newport Road at Hale Common.
"The roadworks section of www.iwight.com will be updated when specific dates for repairs are confirmed."
