Hazell & Jefferies specialise in road planing, a cost-effective and eco-friendly alternative to complete road surface removal. Our state-of-the-art planing machines efficiently remove damaged surfaces, allowing new layers to be directly overlaid onto the existing sub-layers. This method is not only quicker and less costly than full excavation but also significantly reduces environmental impact.

The Benefits and Applications of Road Planing

Road planing is an ideal solution for:

  • Removing Worn-Out Surfacing: Efficiently clearing damaged or old road surfaces.
  • Precise Layer Removal: Accurately removing individual layers for specific roadwork needs.
  • Creating Tie-Ins: Seamlessly connecting new roads to existing infrastructure
  • Car Park and Footpath Resurfacing: Renewing surfaces for improved safety and aesthetics.

What makes our road planing services environmentally friendly?

We offer road planings (also known as road scalpings, tarmac planings or road scrapings) from our stockpiles in Oxfordshire and Berkshire, with some screened to 40mm down. These planings are a by-product of road resurfacing, created when the top layer of tarmac is removed by a cold milling machine. This recycled material is ready for reuse, contributing to sustainable construction practices.

Similarly, the main material in road planings is bitumen. This is a natural resource, making the method a sustainable choice. By minimising waste and the demand for new aggregates, our road planing services contribute to a greener construction industry.
