Is MOT Type 1 Right For My Project?

What is MOT Type 1?

MOT Type 1 is a granular sub-base aggregate approved by the Ministry of Transport (MOT).
It’s made up of various materials, including limestone, crushed concrete, and granite.

There are several different types of Type 1 MOT aggregate, mostly categorised by size and material. However, this crushed aggregate is suitable for use in the construction of highways and pavements, as well as private use.

What is MOT Type 1 aggregate used for?

Composed of recycled materials that compact well to form a solid base, MOT Type 1 is perfect for use on:

  • Backfills
  • Car parks
  • Driveways
  • Garden paths
  • Patios
  • Public pavements
  • Roads
  • Trench fills

Although this type of aggregate is not required for private groundworks, it has all the necessary properties to provide a safe and reliable hardcore layer for your domestic, commercial, or civil engineering application.

What are the benefits of using MOT Type 1?

Something that makes Type 1 MOT stand out from other aggregates is that it’s approved by the Ministry of Transport. When installed properly, it provides a stable and durable sub-base for high traffic road surfaces and pedestrianised areas.

As a result of being made from crushed granite, MOT Type 1 delivers a flat and compact surface with excellent load-bearing capacity. The varying particle sizes ensure they interlock to distribute weight evenly.

MOT Type 1 is an eco-friendly alternative to other crushed aggregates, sending less waste to landfill sites, and helping the UK to meet its sustainability targets.

It’s also worth pointing out that you can get your hands on top-quality MOT  Type 1 without breaking the bank, benefitting from quick turnaround times, so you can finish your project sooner and within budget.
