MOT Type 1 aggregate for Runcorn-based projects

MOT Type 1 is a crushed aggregate made from limestone, concrete and granite.

Approved by the Ministry of Transport, Type 1 hardcore provides a stable sub-base for roads and pavements, as well as patios, driveways and artificial grass. It guarantees a smooth, flat surface with excellent load-bearing properties.

Whilst there is an extensive range of aggregates on the market, we’re finding that our MOT Type 1 in Runcorn is becoming increasingly more popular – and it’s generally because it’s a recycled material. Not only is it cheaper to manufacture than raw materials, but you can also save money on transportation costs – especially if hardcore is locally sourced.

When you buy Type 1 aggregate from us, you can trust that you’ll receive top-quality materials for your project without breaking the bank, as all materials are washed and screened at our sandwashing plant. Plus, you can do your bit for the environment by making the most of materials left over from construction and demolition sites.

Frequently Asked Questions

MOT Type 1 is permeable to a certain extent, allowing a little water through. Once compacted, the building aggregate is sturdy enough for structures to be built on top, but tiny gaps in the aggregate will remain – letting water drain, albeit slowly.

If you are looking for a more permeable aggregate, especially one that will work best with a Sustainable Drainage System (SDS), you should consider MOT Type 3 instead.

If you need to use MOT Type 1 for your project, however, you should consider installing a soakaway to funnel the water below the ground to ensure you have sufficient drainage.

If you need to order today, you can use our quick contact form or send us an email to and we’ll be in touch to see how we can help!

Related to permeability, SuDS compliance relates to Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems.

MOT Type 1 is not SuDS compliant according to the Department of Transport Specification for Highway Works, which means contractors and site managers would be best opting for MOT Type 3 if they are constructing roads and other public highways.

This way, you can ensure the roads and other structures allow rainfall to soak away rather than forming puddles and creating potholes. If you need MOT Type 1 delivered to your project, either bagged or loose-tipped, fill in the enquiry form on your screen or email us at with your requirements and we’ll get back to you to arrange a delivery date.

Recycled crushed aggregates are graded via size rather than material, as this is what is important for their various uses in the construction industry.

As such, MOT Type 1 is made from recovered materials that range in size from 40mm to dust.

These size granules are chosen because they interlock well when compacted, adding strength and allowing for structures like roads, patios, driveways, car parks etc.

To order recycled MOT Type in Runcorn, St Helens, or Widnes, you can call us on 0151 257 8816 – we should be able to deliver to your site in just 48 hours.

Concrete is traditionally made using a mix ratio of 1 part cement, 2 parts fine aggregate (sand) and 4 parts coarse aggregate, so many often wonder if MOT Type 1 is suitable for mixing concrete.

While it may work in a pinch, MOT Type 1 isn’t generally recommended for mixing concrete as the granules are too large, making the mix very rough.

General advice instead encourages the use of gravel or ballast aggregates, which have smaller granules.

To order MOT Type 1 and other recycled aggregates, call the team on 0151 257 8816 or fill in the contact form on the right-hand side of your screen and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.
