The 'day joints' in the tarmac have been breaking up for seven or eight years now and are somewhere between 3" and 12" wide. What makes this so bad is that most traffic is either travelling at ...

MCN spent a day repairing potholes using a revolutionary new technique that is quicker, cheaper and lasts longer than conventional methods. Unlike the traditional pothole repairs in which hot tar is dropped into a pothole, flattened with a jack hammer and sealed with the slippery over banding this new technique, developed by a company called ASI, is much safer for ...
