Asphalt & Macadam Works

Asphalt & Macadam Works
Asphalt surfacing is a common surfacing type, often known as Tarmacadam.

What is Asphalt & Macadam surfacing?
Asphalts & Macadams are produced by mixing hot bitumen and aggregate. The material is then transported to the site in specially insulated trucks. The surface is laid and then compacted by a road roller. Once the fresh material cools to ambient temperature, it becomes sturdy enough for traffic.
