Vehicle crossing/ dropped kerbs

A “Vehicle Crossing” is defined as a section of kerb, lowered to provide vehicular access to an individual property. A standard crossing is usually five kerbs, made up of two dropped kerbs and three flat kerbs in the centre. The full depth of the footway from the kerb to the property boundary will be dug up and tarmaced. It is accepted that more than five kerbs may be required and such a quotation would reflect this.
