Darlington - residential driveway extension

The first three photos show a proposed driveway extension which has been excavated and made ready for the installation of roadbase. The following three photos show the same areas with the sub-base levelled, compacted, covered with a 100mm thick layer of roadbase compacted and waterbound. The following two photos show the same areas straight after the area was tacked with a bitumen emulsion and sealed with a 25mm thick layers of 7mm granite black hotmix. The surface was tempor

Darlington - water diversion hump

Below are photos showing a long water diversion hump installed along the side of an existing red asphalt driveway. The client contacted us to install the water diversion hump as rain water was causing wash-out damage to the natural surface along the side of the driveway. The water has now been diverted to run off the driveway in an area suitable for discharge. The edge of the driveway was tacked with a bitumen emulsion and the hump formed out of 7mm gravelpave/laterite hotmix

Below are photos of two neighbouring badly worn driveways and crossovers. The lives of these ageing driveways have been extended by many years by simply patching them with a bitumen tack and either red gravelpave or black hotmix/asphalt.

Darlington - repairs - hardstand driveway - crossover - patch

Below are before and after pictures of a potholed bitumen crossover and the asphalt/hotmix/bitumen potholed patch overlaying the damage to seal this worn crossover and give it an additional number of years of life. The pothole was first cleaned out, weeds removed, tacked with bitumen emulsion and then overlaid with a 40mm thickness of asphalt/hotmix/bitumen - ready for immediate use. Sand was sprinkled over the freshly laid surface (which blows away in a short amount of time)
