Starting the residential driveway involved our process of re-trimming existing gravel materials. Our crew then continued to box out existing gravel and use a basecourse parallel to new retaining wall. The basecourse is used as an extra binder, increasing the durability of the asphalt.
The process for this job included a nominal 100mm thickness of new roadbase. Along with the application of tackcoat, supply and lay red oxide gravel asphalt hot asphalt.
Our crew also installed a small water diversion hump using hot asphalt to ensure the roads stay in good working conditions.
The owners decided to have a red-oxide drive without kerbing to blend in with the natural bush surrounding. The job includes base preparation and asphalt surfacing. The picture above shows how well the residential driveway has aged several years on.
