Asphalt began to be used as the main working material to cover roads for almost a hundred years. Previously, cobblestones were often used, which were polished with special methods, or simply used ordinary roads, without any coating. Of course, it should be noted that with the development of road transport, it was no longer possible to use the roads as successfully as in those days when equestrian traction was present everywhere, and therefore it was necessary to do everything so that the road surface was inexpensive, but at the same time at the same time effective.
So they began to use asphalt, material of natural origin, which in nature is a huge number. The asphalt is inexpensive material, which is very easily fits on any even surface, quickly hardens, and is able to withstand a large and frequent load of vehicles. Therefore, for more than half a century, it is asphalt that has been used totally in almost all cities of the world, as well as outside the cities, asphalt roads are the main ones, as they contribute to the more successful and rapid movement of cars, as well as asphalt roads take care of cars from various kinds of irregularities that can apply Carriage is harmful. In addition, the asphalt coating is very simple, and therefore the repair of the route on the asphalt basis takes place in a matter of days, if not even hours. Asphalting work is usually carried out in the summer, when the street is dry, which means the asphalt will dry very quickly, and then you can achieve really very high -quality and quick work with asphalting of the road. But in our time, the builders of roads have many different useful devices and machines that make it possible to lay asphalt in the winter and in the autumn, almost year -round.
And the new stamps of asphalt, more here, really became very strong, and the asphalt track can withstand an intensive load and not deteriorate for many years. Without asphalt in our time, it is practically not possible to build a single kilometer of the road that could accept large or small flows of vehicles both in the city line and beyond.
