Darlington - patching - driveway - red asphalt - hotmix
Below are 5 photos of potholed sections of a red asphalt driveway in the Perth hills suburb of Darlington.
The worn areas have been marked out with paint ready for sweeping and patching.
Below are 6 photos of the completed patchwork.
The areas were swept clean, tacked with a bitumen emulsion and patched with a red gravelpave hotmix/asphalt with 1% oxide @ approximately 25mm thick and with edges overlapped to ensure a good seal.
The patches were covered with sand to help avoid scuffing and allow for immediate vehicle use. Even though the sand appears unsightly it will naturally disperse in a couple of days by which time there is less chance of the surface scuffing.
