Rutherford asphalt production
Fulton Hogan creates, connects and cares for communities; building the roads, ports, airports, infrastructure and property which brings people together. We build communities literally from the ground up, starting with our own network of quarries, complemented by our asphalt, emulsion and pre-cast plants.
Fulton Hogan’s asphalt plant in the Maitland suburb of Rutherford is at the heart of the Hunter Valley and close to Newcastle, NSW’s second largest city. At the Port of Newcastle, the world’s largest coal expert facility, Fulton Hogan’s expertise in asphalt production and laying made us the perfect choice when heavy duty pavement was needed.
The Hunter Valley is a major NSW tourist destination. Although famous for its wineries, industries such as agriculture, dairy and beef farming, horse breeding and electricity production also contribute to its economic activity. Fulton Hogan’s Rutherford asphalt production and laying operations are ideally placed to service the vital road network that link towns like Singleton, Musswellbrook and Cessnock to Newcastle. The New England Highway along with many local and rural roads form a regional road transport infrastructure that connects communities and allows regional townships to grow and prosper.
Rutherford and Maitland are also surrounded by ecologically significant areas that have been set aside for national parks or as conservation areas. The technical staff at Fulton Hogan’s asphalt production plant use state-of-the-art technology and source innovative international developments to reduce the impact on our local environment.
Fulton Hogan’s Rutherford-based skilled and experienced asphalt production and laying team have an intimate knowledge of this road network and the special characteristics of the region. Our specialist understanding, teamed with state-of-the-art plant and equipment, ensures that Fulton Hogan can supply asphalt that of the highest quality and designed to meet local needs.
Spray seal in Rutherford
Our spray sealing capabilities allow us to extend our capabilities to the maintenance and upkeep of rural roads that extend into the flood plains and alluvial flats of the Lower Hunter Valley. Our Rutherford crew employs a range of spray seal products and applications to seal and rehabilitate lesser used roads, preventing water damage and substantially extending their lifespan.
