Glen Forrest - driveway - crossover - parking area
The following six photos show existing hardstand areas prior to any works commencing.
The following nine photos show the same areas as above cleared of grass, scraped clean and the beginning of gravel/ferricrete being brought in and spread.
The following six photos show all the gravel/ferricrete installed, spread, graded, compacted and waterbound. This forms a solid hardstand surface ready for the application of a bitumen tackcoat and a layer of asphalt/hotmix.
The following four photos below show the surface immediately after completion of laying a bitumen tack and 25mm thick layer of red gravelpave/laterite hotmix/asphalt with 1% oxide.
The surface has been sprinkled with sand to allow for immediate vehicular use.
The sand will disperse naturally over a few days as the final photos show.
Photos below show the new asphalt surface two days after completion - note the sand has dispersed.
Sections of the asphalt/hotmix surface are showing signs of red coming through already.
The bitumen will oxidise over time with exposure to sunlight and lighten gradually.
