Tarmac is used by RJB Paving for areas to be trafficked by vehicles. It can also be used for paths, although we are not overly keen on using tarmac for garden paths. The uppermost surface can be 'coloured' by using a coloured binder, often with coloured aggregates, or by incorporating coloured, coated chippings into a HRA wearing course.
Tarmac laid by RJB Paving will be machine laid by a paver machine, except where it would be impossible/impracticle to use the machine. Such exceptions include small areas, confined spaces and footpaths.
The photos show the car park at Alton Garden Centre that was resurfaced by RJB Paving in July 2010. The car park is very busy at weekends and needed to have clear traffic instructions and many parking bays lined out to optimise the space available.
