Building a road requires a wide range of pieces of construction equipment.
Once the earthmoving machineries have prepared the ground, it is time for the other ones to achieve their work to help finishing the capping layer, the tack coat and the surface course.
A chip spreader is used to create the capping layer, which is composed of gravels. This layer aims at improving the bearing capacity of the road by homogenizing it.
The tack coat, under the surface course is performed thanks to a binder sprayer. It is usually made up of binders or asphalt emulsions. When the sprayer is equipped with a hopper, it refers to the sprayer spreader.
The top layer of the road is the surface course, which is formed of asphalt. Asphalt is produced by a coating plant and a finisher lays it along the road.
An asphalt planer or cold milling machine tends to be used for the repair works and recycling in order to scratch asphalt, as well as the soil stabilizer to mix the binder and stabilize the road.
Finally, a flail mower and a verge cutter are usually used to keep the roadway clean.
