About 90% of New Zealand roads are made of granular bases compacted and then sealed with bitumen-based chipseals. Asphalt is used on just 10% of roads - generally city streets requiring smoother and less noisy surfaces. Asphalt, which costs more, involves mixing aggregate and bitumen in a dedicated asphalt-manufacturing plant, which is then laid by a paving machine and rolled.
