£2.7 million work to improve roads in the East Riding and help prevent potholes from forming has started.
Over the next five months the council will be upgrading road surfaces at 190 sites.
Around 16,000 tonnes of stone chippings will be laid on around 750,000 square metres of roads.
Paul Tripp, head of streetscene services at East Riding Council, says: "Surface dressing is our first line of defence against potholes.
"This work plays a vital part in protecting our roads for the future and makes sure that motorists will benefit from an improved road network for years to come.
"We'd like to thank residents and motorists in advance for their patience while this year’s work is carried out."
