Realignment of the A379 Slapton Sands Causeway in Devon was challenging due to its importance to tourism and location within a National Nature Reserve. Using Ultifastpave saved around £30k for the authority, but also reduced excavation requirements, material volumes and vehicle movements on this sensitive site. The scheme won the Chartered institution of Highways & Transportation South West Transportation Environment Award and Transport Project of the Year Award.
The ultimate fast, single layer surfacing solution
ULTIFASTPAVE has been developed as a single layer application for urban and estate roads maintenance, that require a cost effective durable surface course. The single layer technology replaces the traditional binder and surface course construction approach. This enables construction times to be reduced and disruption for road users to be minimised.
Ultimate time saving
Single layer application means significant reductions in project delivery times compared to dual layer resurfacing.
Shorter project delivery times mean less operational disruption for clients and lower costs.
Lasting durabilitySingle layer application improves compaction and reduces the insitu voids in the finished layer thereby improving long term durability.
Ultimate solutionsDesigned as a 14mm nominal sized product that provides a dense finish at up to 75mm thick. ULTIFASTPAVE is proven as an invaluable solution for planned maintenance regimes.

Car Park Surfacing
ULTIFASTPAVE can also be used as a fast, single layer surfacing solution for car parks, helping to reduce construction times, while delivering long term durability.
- Rural Roads
- Housing Estate Roads
- Car parks
The client needed a safe, durable, cost-effective car park surface. Using Tarmac Ultifastpave reduced the construction time by half and generated a £15,000 cost saving.
ULTIFASTPAVE was utilised to provide a single combined binder and surface course layer. The properties of ULTIFASTPAVE allowed easier compaction to achieve a dense, low voids mixture that was capable of providing the durable surface required for the low speed but heavy volumes of traffic.
