Car Park Resurfacing – not always straight lines

We don’t spend much time in carparks, usually arriving in them with moments to spare before we need to be dashing off elsewhere.

Whose asphalt is it anyway?

When it comes to asphalt, getting to grips with what’s really going on below the surface is paramount.  There are things we take for granted and being able to move safely from A to B while going about our daily lives is one of them. Whether we are dragging ourselves out for that early morning

We interviewed Managing Director, Howard J Cooke, to see whether we might uncover the secret behind his success in both life and business. How does a normal day start for you? What time do you get out of bed in the morning? Luckily I’m a morning person and usually find myself jumping out of bed

Seasonal pothole disorder and how to prevent it

If only potholes were a disorder confined to single seasons, but unfortunately they seem to be appearing as a year-round problem affecting us all whether we are motorists, cyclists, pedestrians or air travellers.

What is the true cost of closing Britain’s roads for maintenance?

We all groan when we hit a stretch of motorway that is being widened, finding ourselves changing down to 50mph and squeezed into narrow lanes sandwiched between hustling lorries and corralled between out-of-kilter road markings. Yet knowing there is an ultimate sense of purpose, that these works are developmental and in the name of progress,

Britain’s European Road Trip

Going abroad to Europe isn’t just about cheap alcohol and duty free. Nor is it just about the endless queues at Dover or Folkestone that make us feel as though our long-awaited holiday is never going to get underway as we sit over-heating with hungry, thirsty, frustrated children who no longer want to look for

Bridging the technology gap

Far more goes into our bridging technology under the surface than we realise and when the bridges are spanning sizeable widths and at height, the upkeep and maintenance is significant and a routine schedule of works a necessity.
