Is this the Fastest Way to Pave a Road?

We’re not exactly experts on paving roads, but based on how long you see construction set up, you would be inclined to think that, even after leveling a surface, that it would take much, much longer than this to properly get a road paved nice and smoothly.
This time, we watch from the air as a drone captures some aerial footage of a paving crew getting to work as they lay down some fresh blacktop and roll it down smoothly in a matter of what probably took just a couple of hours in total when you consider the sped up footage.
Check out the video below that shows off the process unfolding in front of our eyes in just a couple of minutes. The quickness of this job really leads one to wonder if this is a job that will be able to withstand all of the elements and the test of time!
Have you ever seen how a road is bituminised? Finishing touches were recently accomplished on the $443,000 upgrade to Airstrip Road. Funded through Roads to Recovery Funding Program. A great job by our road works crew and Trevor Longman with the Shires drone for the footage.A total of 4.9kms were completed over a two day period.
