TODAY'S warm weather may mean the Isle of Wight Council has to apply granite chippings to roads again.
Some Isle of Wight roads had to be treated at the end of last month as high temperatures caused the surface dressing, laid earlier this year, to melt.
The Met Office is predicting highs of 23 degrees today and with highs of 21 tomorrow (Saturday) and 20 on Sunday, work to spread chippings may continue over the weekend.
The Isle of Wight Council said: "This process, if necessary, should ensure all roads remain open although there may be some delays while the granite chippings are laid.
"We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. The work is being carried out at the expense of the contractors. We will publicise the location of any necessary work throughout the day via this page on www.iwight.com, our Facebook and Twitter pages and through the local media.
"Work to bring about a more permanent solution will be undertaken – again at the expense of our contractors – after the summer season."
