Asphalt resurfacing has to be one of the easiest and most cost effective when compared to concrete and gravel resurfacing. Asphalt can be quickly removed, and is also one of the quickest materials to relay. As asphalt is also one of the best road surfaces available, it makes it an ideal surface for our road network. To relay an asphalt surface, the old layer first needs to be removed. This is probably the most labour intensive task of the entire operation. Specialist machinery can help however, and it’s common to have one team dismantling the old surface, while a second team begins laying the new road behind. This technique allows entire roads to be resurfaced very quickly. On roads with more than one lane, it’s also possible for asphalt resurfacing teams to resurface an entire road without the need to divert traffic. Traffic light systems can be used to direct traffic onto the lane that isn’t being worked on while the other lane is resurfaced. Because asphalt has no curing time, traffic can usually use it the moment the asphalt resurfacing is complete, meaning workmen can then switch to the other lane and begin the process again. Asphalt resurfacing can also be carried out on small patches of road if defects, potholes or cracks are reported. Teams can very quickly deal with these problems without disrupting traffic at all. Asphalt resurfacing is also commonly carried out after new pipes or utility companies lay cables.
