Many commercial areas see traffic that is a lot less about cars and a lot more about specialised vehicles such as forklifts, trailers and heavy trucks. These types of vehicles need sturdy surfaces to endure the rigours the extra weight presents.
Unlike concrete, asphalt is the perfect surface to withstand the wear and tear of commercial traffic in both keeping the surface even (especially necessary for vehicles with a shorter and sometimes unstable wheel base) and for withstanding the weight of heavier vehicles carrying goods. Asphalt also wears better and is less likely to erode under heavy use. Use asphalt rather than concrete for heavy vehicle traffic areas.

Deciding to install speed humps to slow down vehicle traffic will certainly make things safer for pedestrians. However, whether to use rubber or asphalt in the speed hump construction is an important consideration. Rubber speed humps will need a concrete slab to bolt to because if you bolt straight to asphalt they will soon work themselves loose and come off leaving you with an expensive repair. Adding a concrete slab to fix the speed bumps to is expensive also. Rubber is also much more susceptible to wear. Asphalt speed humps are quick easy to install and give lasting results. Due to their structure they are a lot more cost effective and will cost less in the long term.

Don’t be found liable for damage where injuries that occur as a result of pavement hazards. In any area that is subject to public traffic, whether its pedestrian foot traffic or vehicle traffic, ensure your asphalt surfaces are free from potential trip hazards by checking for early signs wear and damage.
Get it fixed early and spend less time defending legal action!
