Micro Asphalt Surfacing
This type of surfacing is widely used in the urban areas of the Vale points to remember with the finished surface.
Micro- asphalt surfacing is a cost effective solution for resurfacing roads showing the early signs of wear and tear which fills in all the cracks, potholes and voids in the carriageway to improve skid resistance and seal the road preventing water getting in thereby extending its life.
The road does not need to be planed off so saves time and money as well as reducing disruption to local highway users as the road can be reopened a lot quicker after treatment has been applied.
Residents should be advised that the road surface can look unsightly for a period of approximately two weeks following the surface treatment being applied and there may be some loose stone - this is natural, but the road surface will soon look like normal carriageway after a couple of weeks
It has low noise characteristics, good riding qualities and is an efficient process that allows us to reduce the time on site.
Please Note: This type of surfacing will not strengthen the road
