Alice Springs asphalt production & laying and spray sealing
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.
Asphalt production and laying in Alice Springs
Fulton Hogan’s asphalt Alice Springs asphalt production plant services an enormous area of central Australia. Halfway along the Sturt Highway, which links Adelaide to Darwin, the town is a magnet for tourists and workers, with no other commercial centres or industry of note to be found for hundreds of kilometres.
Construction, mining and manufacturing contribute approximately 25% of the regional product towards Alice Spring’s economy. The vast distances in this part of Australia make the creation and maintenance of quality road surfaces vital in supporting these industries, enabling them to bring in raw materials and get their products to market and on to their consumers. Fulton Hogan’s asphalt laying teams have state-of-the-art mobile equipment that enables them to be deployed rapidly where and when required, even in remote locations such as this. With temperatures averaging almost 40 degrees in the summer but getting down to almost freezing at night in the winter, Fulton Hogan’s expertise in producing high quality asphalts for the most demanding conditions is invaluable.
Spray sealing services in Alice Springs
Fulton Hogan’s spray sealing operations are also of particular relevance around Alice Springs. Small pastoral communities, long distances from town rely on poor quality roads for all their supplies. The binders we can apply to the surfaces of these rural roads protect them and greatly extend their longevity as lifelines for the communities they connect. Alice services a region of over 500,000 square kilometres with a population of approximately 40,000 – our mobile teams have the infrastructure behind them to ensure surfaces across this vast area are maintained to ensure nobody is isolated.
