Bentley - patching - crossover
The first two photos show a severely cracked section of a crossover to a commercial property in Bentley.
The damaged section of asphalt was cut out and removed and the existing base re-rolled and water-bound.
The base was tacked heavily with a bitumen emulsion and patched with a 70mm thick layer of 14mm granite black asphalt/hotmix.
The surface was compacted with a heavy vibrating roller and cooled down with water (as can be seen in the photos) to allow for immediate heavy traffic use.
The patched area will lighten up in colour over time to a similar shade as the surrounding asphalt/bitumen surface.
