Hot wash for CBD footpaths

12/12/2014 12:00 a.m.

The annual steam clean of footpaths in the Ashburton Central Business District (CBD) will start on Sunday 14th December.

The special steam wash process, which removes stains that the weekly sweeping cannot remove, will take three nights to complete with contractors working between the hours of 3am and 6am to get the job done.

The yearly clean and stain removal usually happens about this time of the year.

Because of the heat involved it can only be done yearly as the hot temperature can affect the integrity of the asphalt.
