We will be working with council over the next 6 months to prove the number of operational issues.

1. Does a tyre roller improve the surface longevity of an unsealed road after grading and resheeting?  Currently a single steel drum roller is used on grading works.  Is it economical to do so?

2. Does a ripping (cut depth up to 100mm) type of grade improve the surface longevity over the cutting (cut depth up to 30mm) type of grade?  Is it economical to do so?  How will coverage of the network be affected?
