This client on Bar Lane in Horsham had a very worn, uneven driveway in need of an upgrade. It was susceptible to flooding into a small levelling pond to one side. We knew that the level of the new tarmac driveway needed to be raised to help keep the water from damaging the surface whilst creating a flat, level and attractive driveway up to the farmhouse.
We started off by digging some drainage trenches to allow the water to run off from the surface and back into the existing ditches around the driveway. We then marked out the driveway and carried out some sub-base repairs where required to ensure the new tarmac surface could be laid with confidence.
Having a decent base to work with we applied a base layer of course, tarmac/asphalt to level the driveway up, taking out any undulations and raising the surface up above the water table. This base course was laid using a tarmac paving machine ensuring excellent compaction, then rolled in using a 1t, sit-on roller. The base course was left to cool before laying a smoother, surface course of the tarmac.
Laid through the paving machine the finish of the new tarmac driveway is excellent and will provide a long-lasting and usable private road for many years to come.
