Glen Forrest - Perth hills - red asphalt crossover
Red asphalt / red oxide bitumen / red hotmix are commonly used in the Perth hills areas, including this crossover at a home in Glen Forrest. The double width crossover plus wings allows the property owners to access their concrete driveway from the road. The photo was taken immediately after the job was completed so water is visible on the surface. The asphalt also appears almost black, but will lighten to a red colour over time when the red oxide is exposed to sunlight.
