Roleystone - hills - black asphalt
Updated: Dec 22, 2020
Below are photos of an extremely steep hillside at the rear of a property where the owner requested us to install a driveway, crossover and carbays.
The surface was scraped clean of any vegetation and a 100mm thick layer of gravel/laterite/roadbase was laid, compacted and waterbound to form a hardstand surface in preparation for asphalting.
The surface was tacked with a bitumen emulsion and covered with a 25mm thick layer of 7mm granite black hotmix without any kerbing to the edges.
All material including the gravel was carted up the hillside with a Bobcat as it was too steep for a truck to use safely.
Once the majority of the asphalting was completed, part of the barrier road kerb was removed and replaced with a mountable heavy-duty grey coloured concrete kerb.
The logistics of this job were highly complex but we got there in the end much to the satisfaction of the client.
