A sealed road is typically more expensive to construct than an unsealed road, but sealed roads have a number of advantages over unsealed roads including:

  • Dust Suppression
  • A more comfortable ride for motorists & cyclists
  • Trafficability in wet weather.
  • The exclusion of water from the road pavement

In Australia and many other countries the great majority of urban roads, and most highly trafficked rural roads are sealed roads.
