Everything You Need to Know

Just as you would expect from any other city, navigating Norwich’s roads can be challenging at times, especially during rush hour or adverse weather conditions. That’s where tarmac can make all the difference. Here is how it can improve commutes and safety on the road – and why it’s vital to work with a specialist in tarmac Norwich residents trust.

What is Tarmac?

First of all, what is tarmac? It’s a popular surfacing material that is made from tar and aggregate materials such as gravel, crushed stone, or sand. The mixture is heated until it becomes sticky, and this allows contractors to lay it down onto a prepared surface – in this case, a roadbed. Once cooled, the material hardens into a smooth, durable surface that provides excellent traction for vehicles. As well as roads, it’s also a fantastic option for driveways and paths.

Improved Commute Times

One of the biggest benefits of using tarmac for roads in Norwich is improved commute times. With smoother surfaces, cars can travel faster without compromising on safety – while staying within all local speed limits, of course. Additionally, tarmacked roads are much less susceptible to potholes, cracks, and other forms of damage that can slow traffic flow. As a result, drivers will spend less time stuck in traffic jams, making their commutes much more straightforward and benefiting the local businesses they work for.

Enhanced Safety

Safety is paramount when it comes to driving, and tarmacking has a big role when it comes to improving safety on Norwich’s roads. For instance, tarmac offers superior skid resistance compared to other types of surfacing materials. It also reduces splashback during wet weather, making it easier for motorists to see what’s ahead. Tarmac absorbs sound better than alternative options too, resulting in quieter journeys and reduced noise pollution – which is nothing short of essential in a city centre.

Durability and Maintenance

Another advantage of using tarmac for roads in Norwich is its durability and low maintenance requirements. Unlike other surfaces which may crack under pressure or extreme temperatures, tarmac remains flexible even after years of use. Repair work on damaged sections is relatively straightforward as well – we’ll just heat up a new tarmac mix and pour it over the affected area before compacting it back into place. Regular inspections and timely repairs help ensure longevity and prevent smaller issues from developing into bigger ones.
