It’s a far coarser surface, and a different method.
Hear me out …
Spoke to the workmen at the time, saying it was amazing how quickly they could do it. The one I spoke to said that the looses stone would bed down in a couple of days once vehicles went over them.
That turns out to be true, but with cars parked either side and room for only one car going up the middle (and any car coming having to pull in to let it past) it only happened for the centre. There are two lines of compacted tarmac up the middle, like a farm track in look not feel.
The rest will never compact.
Having seen the other roads mentioned, I assumed they would be back for coat two.
It is a cheaper job. It was laid in a day.
Anyway – I’ve reported it
