Asphalt growth

Asphalt was the most indemand material last year, with sales rising by 5 per cent compared with 2001.

Figures from the Quarry Products Association show that crushed rock demand dropped 3 per cent, sand and gravel fell by 4 per cent and ready-mixed concrete reduced by 2 per cent.

Leaders of the association are blaming the declines on a tailing-off in construction activity during the second half of 2002.
