Aggregate material is crushed to 40mm down to dust. This mixture of sizes makes it great for compaction, making it extremely strong with great loading bearing qualities.
It’s often used as a subbase for roads, highways, and pathways.
MOT stands for Ministry of Transport (MOT). It was also known as DOT Type 1 for the Department of Transport (DOT).
It’s given this name because it was specified in the Department of Transport Specification for Highway Works.
Generally, it’s produced using Gritstone, Limestone, Granite, or Basalt. Recycled materials such as Bricks, Concrete, and Hardcore can also be used.
If the material is to be used in highway works it must meet Clause 803 in the Specification for Highway Works.
