Road Planings

Road planings  (tarmac planings)  are a by-product of the process of road resurfacing.  When an old road is resurfaced, the old tarmac is cold milled straight into the lorry from a planing machine. 

Road planings are an ideal and cheaper alternative to quarry stone.  Planings are a fraction of the price of quarry stone, and actually make better roads and driveways.

Planings will bind together once laid, to produce a durable but free draining surface.  For maximum benefit, the surface should be rolled to compact the material. 

The use of Road planings is recommended by the Environment Agency, and is also environmentally friendly, as it minimises waste from the construction of roads.

We deliver road planing in 6 or 8 wheel tipper lorries, with loads of 16- 20 tonnes respectively.

We deliver direct from the road, or from stock.
