Hi guys,
Need some advice. I need ideally to get a sleeved pipe across a tarmac drive approxamtly 2.5meters wide.
It is soil either side.
In a perfect world I would like to go under if possible but how deep is a tarmac drive likely to be?
If going under is not feasible is channeling possible with an angle grinder?

Any help appreciated?

Thanks

Reuben

If it's a drive and it's been laid properly it could be around 200mm deep. Should include around 100mm of hardcore underneath so it wouldn't be so hard to take up once you get through the top.
I think you can get cold lay tarmac to repair it but I've never used it, but it won't be seamless like discrete pavers would be.

The Coldlay stuff in tubs is good when put down with a wacker.


How would you plan to go under?

The way to go under would be to Mole the pipe through but in your case I think it's just as easy to cut a channel and refill it after you have laid the pipe in.

For the cost to hire a mole and compressor you could relay the whole drive.
