There is a wide range of road treatments being used for driveways to Motorway sections. These different types of materials vary in content but do not vary in purpose. All tar/bitumen surfacing laid have the same purpose, to form a stiff, strong, impermeable surface that would have a maintenance free life of 20 years. It is easily laid and handled depending on temperature.
