Our main road had deteriorated so badly during the past five years, it has just been planed off to a depth of three or more inches.... I posted a pic of that machine, last week... Here then is another incredible machine that lays a continuous layer of seamless hot tarmac at an incredible rate. The team of men are well rehearsed in what they have to do, whilst a group of huge heated trucks wait their turn to fill the machine’s hopper as it crawls ever forwards.....
Fascinating to watch......I have posted versions.

An excellent set, Hobbo which is, indeed, "fascinating to watch"!!Smile
Let's hope the newly laid road will be free from 'roadworks' for a while!!

I love watching these amazing machines, but the road rollers haven't changed that much. The bright treatment works really well and the Formation Road Rolling Team in V3 is Smile
An excellent series.
