Uncluttered skid resistant road surface
Tidy uncluttered streets give the impression of quality. Different coloured surfaces can make a road look cluttered. And there is a very wide range of coloured road surfaces to chose from. Too many in fact. There are no legal reasons to use different colours. Sometimes changes of colour occur where a skid resistant material is used, as a safety measure. Yet a skid resistant material which is the same colour as the rest of the road may look neater.

Guyana bauxite, a dark grey material, achieves a skid resistance of 70PSV (polished stone value) considered satisfactory by the Highways Agency for “demanding” locations. It is the same colour as a normal road surface and thereby reduces clutter.
