Machine Laying

Most private drives are just too small to machine lay. But where possible we would use a machine to lay the material. The main advantage of laying by machine is that the accuracy of finish is improved and also large quantities of tarmac can be laid in a day.

The disadvantage with machine laying is the number of joints that are required if the area is wider than the machine. Most machines will lay up. to 5M strips, so if the area is 20M wide, there are a number of joints.
