Road retexturing and the re-texturing of motorways and airport runways are all critical safety processes associated with government legislation. Coupe Line has some three decades of practical experience in delivering the highest quality services and is a UK specialist in delivering cost-effective highway solutions to local authorities and other public, commercial and private organisations. We can also apply the same safety enhancements by retexturing airport runways at commercial, private and military airports.

Ensuring road safety is a legal requirement imposed on local authorities and we assist them in achieving the required varied government skid resistance value (SRV) standards for all types and category of public highway. Our professional road retexturing services enable them to enhance road safety and reduce road accidents, injuries and fatalities.



The road surfaces on public highways across the UK tend to be constructed of either hot rolled asphalt (HRA) or stone mastic asphalt (SMA). Skid resistance values on these road surfaces diminish over time, progressively reducing road safety standards. This is a natural process that is a combination of our seasonal weather and the wear and tear caused by variable road traffic usage.

Throughout our summer season when we get periods of high temperatures and ‘heat wave’ conditions, the bitumen can melt and rise to the surface of the road, thus reducing grip. Whilst at the opposite end of the year, during winter months, the freezing and thawing of water in gaps and cracks in the road surface can again reduce surface adherence for road vehicles. And all this leads to a build up of surface debris that further reduces surface grip skid resistance. In addition to this, constant traffic flow, plus the volume and weight of vehicles, causes further physical surface deterioration and polishes the surface making surface traction even less.



Methods of road retexturing repair have changed over the years. Older techniques were more costly, more disruptive to road users, and involved the planing of the road surface necessitating the application of new surface dressings. But Coupe Line use an industry-leading hydroblasting process of high-powered water to enable controlled retexturing, rapid removal of surface layers, extremely competitive and cost-effective pricing and environmentally-friendly processes. Also, the surface microtexture has improved skid resistance and the surface macro texture is restored, thus improving drainage and reducing aquaplaning risks.

Coupe Line's professional teams of operatives are exceptionally highly-trained on our industry-leading machinery to ensure the highest quality standards, the highest of safety standards and minimum of disruption in road retexturing. We provide the total road retexturing project management package for our clients.
