A property owner had a large dairy lane that required annual maintenance of a 3,000sqm area. The expense and time required to maintain an even, safe surface for the 350 head of cattle travelling over the dairy lane at a time, became too high. An alternative sustainable, long-lasting solution had to be implemented.
The project called for a solution that created surface uniformity for cattle to travel safely across but that also prevented soil erosion, bogging and rutting of the area. As the dairy lane had curves, contours and slopes, the solution also had to have a suitable amount of flexibility that would stand up to years of regular use.
Having used a large amount of limestone on the dairy lane historically, the repurposing of some of the existing aggregate was important.
