Why don't we do surface dressing at night?

Why don't we do surface dressing at night?

National guidance recommends avoiding night working to prevent the treatment from failing. This is built on scientific research and industry experience where ambient temperatures and moisture leads to double-breaking of the binder layer thus leading to failure of the treatment. 

Night time works are used on some occasions for other surfacing operations that are less susceptible to air temperatures and moisture content to help minimise disruption for the local community. Night time works tend to cost around 50% more so do result in less work being delivered overall.
