Is asphalt the best surface for my driveway?

Considering whether to lay asphalt or concrete/pavers on a driveway you need to take into account a number of factors. How big or long is the driveway surface? What sort of traffic will use the driveway – cars, trucks, machinery? How much will it cost to lay the surface? How much weight does it need to withstand? What surrounds the area to be surfaced – landscaping, fences? Where do the water runoffs occur? In general choosing asphalt over concrete checks all the boxes for any type of surface construction. Get a quote now and find out how asphalt is the right choice for driveways.

Shopper wins $285,000 in damages

Shopper wins $285,000 in damages after shopping trolley fall caused by pothole.

On June 6, 2011, Despina Cavric wasn't doing anything out of the ordinary. Just like so many other Australians, she was doing the household shopping. However, as she pushed her shopping trolley towards her car she was caught out by a pothole, fell and was injured. Fast forward to last week and Despina was awarded damages by the NSW District Court in financial compensation for ongoing pain and suffering. Despina sued the Willoughby City Council for negligence and last week the court ordered the council pay her $285,915 in addition to her legal costs.

This unfortunate circumstance is not the first time in Australia that potholes have attributed to accidents and compensation. Don't disregard those early signs of asphalt and bitumen wear. Act early and protect your patrons and customers and protect yourself from costly legal woes as well.
