By doing this, the dry previous surface of the existing tar runway was rejuvenated and the entire piece of work was given a consistent blacktop effect. Applying slurry over an elderly tar surface is a technique of reapplying bitumen to the expanse and providing the surface with a degree of elasticity. The slurry also assists in sealing the tar surface and stops water penetrating through little cracks and softening the base, which will lead to potholes forming.
Working during rainy weather has to be avoided because slurry is a water based product. Rain dilutes it and washes it off the project surface, thus creating a mess that has to be overcome before the job can be re-done. Weather conditions were overcast with a threat of rain. As the Club needed the job through ahead of their next meeting, plans were produced, the staff was briefed and work started. Rain followed!
However with careful planning, timing and perseverance the piece of work was done and handed over to the client on time and with satisfaction on both sides.Due to the nature of contract and the position of the site, MasterTar was able to treat the area as a closed site, and thus no supplementary traffic control was vital. As is policy in the company, however, being out of sight does not mean that rules and regulations are permitted to be relaxed and all appropriate PPE was worn by our personnel at all times.
This discipline ensures that we have a motivated, protected and happy staff. The outcome of their motivation is the delivery of quality projects to satisfied clients. Master Tar's project management and planning skills, combined with years of experience combined to provide Irene Radio Flyers with a lengthy tar runway made to fit with their requirements.
