Consists of: tarmac road planings removed from sub-base by cold milling machine.

Usage: An inexpensive and environmentally sound way to resurface hardstandings, including car parks, footpaths, farm tracks, yards and haul roads. Can also be used as a sub-base or void filling material.


Road planings – otherwise known as tarmac planings, road scalpings or tarmac scalpings – are a byproduct of road and path resurfacing, where a cold milling machine removes asphalt from the surface sub-base, ready to be recycled. Once removed and cooled, these tarmac planings are a hardwearing and weather resistant recycled aggregate, and can be repurposed for use on hardstandings such as car parks, footpaths, farm tracks and haul roads. They can also be used as a sub-base in construction or as void filling material, but must not be reheated, for health and safety reasons.

Whilst road scalpings are a cost-effective and environmentally sound choice for resurfacing, availability does depend on how much road resurfacing is taking place locally, and as such we’re not necessarily able to supply planings to our customers throughout the year.

Key features

  • Removed from road or pavement sub-base by cold milling machine.
  • Inexpensive and environmentally sound as bitumen is a natural product and the process recycles existing aggregate.
  • Hard-wearing and weather resident, ideal for high traffic areas.
  • Use our road scalpings to resurface car parks, footpaths, farm tracks, yards and haul roads.
  • Not the most attractive finish so not typically suited to use in domestic gardens or driveways, except as a sub-base.
  • Contact us if you require loose load delivery.
