Contractor Fitzpatrick

Contractor Fitzpatrick has unveiled a new method for pouring hard wearing whisper concrete. Until now the extremely quiet road surfacing material - claimed to have a 40 year life span - has been cast in two layers to keep aggregate costs down. The new technique, being used on the A13 in Essex, allows the contractor to cast the exposed aggregate road in one layer thus simplifying constuction.
