Project Description

The road (Lower Hotham - rural road) has several sections that are either cracked or rutted or have depressions or combinations of the same, which allows water to pond on the road surface which is dangerous to the driving public and further the water seeping into the road pavement generally leads to further road damage . The sections requiring repair are located between straight line kilometre 1.3 and straight line kilometre 10.1.

The corrective works involve the laying of a specialised asphalt layer to correct the depressions which impair the ride quality of the road and are a precursor to resealing as the road profile is restored to its original form as opposed to being deformed. These repairs will extend the life of those sections of the road and we can thus avoid expensive reconstruction work.
