Have you ever seen how a road is bituminised?

Check out this video made by the Shire of Moora, Western Australia on how they lay this road in the outback.

Finishing touches were recently accomplished on the $443,000 upgrade to Airstrip Road. Funded through Roads to Recovery Funding Program. A great job by our road works crew and Trevor Longman with the Shires drone for the footage.

A total of 4.9kms were completed over a two day period.

This type of road construction is now beginning to take hold on rural roads in our area as well. Time will tell how well they hold up relative to some of the previous cold-mix "Japanese pavement" methods.
