More rocks have been placed on Deniliquin's Hardinge St in an effort to soak up melting tar.ZOE MCMAUGH January 8, 2013 1:23pm
Deni Works predicts only one or two more loads of new stone will need to be laid on Hardinge St before the issue with melting tar is under control.
Works manager with Deni Works, Jim Grant, said the melting, known as a bleed, was common with newly sealed roads when the temperature rises.
Extra stone was laid out on Hardinge St on Friday when a bleed occurred.
It was expected to help take up the excess tar ahead of the predicted extreme temperatures on the weekend.
‘‘The Roads and Maritime Services put down three loads of metal to take up the bleeding,’’ Mr Grant said.
‘‘They have now asked Deni Works to monitor the bleed and do what needs to be done. We hope that it will only take one or two more loads before the issue is resolved.
‘‘We can only do that when we have a bleed, which may be tomorrow (Tuesday) or may not.’’
