Hovea - water diversion hump
The client at this Hovea property was concerned about a water run-off flooding problem.
We were contracted to form a water diversion hump across the driveway to divert water
run-off to a preferred area.
The section of driveway was tacked with a bitumen emulsion and the hump formed with red laterite/gravelpave hotmix/asphalt with 1% oxide which is the same material as what this near new driveway was sealed with.
The surface of both the hump and driveway will oxidise and lighten up to a gravel/terracotta colour over a short period of time. The more the surface is exposed to the sun the faster the colour changes.
