Jane Brook - residential driveway - crossover - steep
The first two photos show the existing crossover and hardstand driveway to a newly built house in the Perth hills suburb of Jane Brook.
The existing hardstand surface which was contaminated with sand was excavated and removed.
The sub-base was levelled prior to a minimum 100mm thick layer of roadbase was laid, levelled, compacted and waterbound.
Once the newly laid hardstand surface had dried out the area was tacked with a bitumen emulsion and a 25mm thick layer of 7mm laterite/gravelpave red asphalt with 1% oxide was laid to form a newly sealed crossover, parking bay and driveway.
The area was covered with sand to allow for immediate vehicle use and to deter scuff marks.
The sand will naturally disperse over a short period of time with the elements and the surface will oxidise over the summer months and lighten in colour.
We left a hardstand roadbase shoulder around the perimeter of the new red asphalt/hotmix to allow for the owners to install their own kerbing/border/limestone wall - yet to be decided.
