  • Sub Base Course

    Sub-Base Course. This consists of one or more layers of open graded angular material placed above the natural subgrade such as 10/63mm, 4/20mm and 2/6mm clean stone - all available from Day Aggregates. The pavement design will incorporate the above materials in varying amounts depending on the pavement design specification.

  • What is Ballast

    Some of the important functions of railway ballast are: To provide firm and level bed for the sleepers to rest on. To allow for maintaining correct track level without disturbing the rail road bed. To drain off the water quickly and to keep the sleepers in dry conditions. To protect the surface of formation and to form an elastic bed. To hold

    May 05, 2019A solid subbase is a key to a successful building project. A slab on ground and pavements normally are designed to be supported by a solid subbase, which needs to be uniform by nature to support the structure above it. A subbase will go on top of the subgrade, which typically is native soil or improved soil that has been compacted.

    Ballast is the name for the "stones" beneath the railway tracks. This aggregate forms the trackbed and supports the track. In addition it helps with drainage, so that rain water can drain away rather than pooling. Another role played by ballasts is preventing vegetation growth, which could destabilise the track and be a hazard for anyone
