Or to give it it's proper name..........surface dressed.
Our road has been done, it all looks pristine and perfect, but horrible to drive over with chippings flying up everywhere. Hopefully the sweeper will be along soon and hoover up all the loose stuff.
Now, swept chipping are "hazardous waste" and have to go to be cleaned and washed before being used again.
Colin spent several years working on the roads tarring and chipping each summer, it was a hot horrible job, raking in the stones or standing on the back of the tar-pot directing the man who was driving backwards with the chippings lorry. His boots would be caked in tar and overalls black instead of orange. But the overtime money was good.
