What is MOT Type 1?

Abbreviated from Ministry of Transport Type 1, MOT Type 1 is probably the most popular aggregate in the construction industry and is commonly used in the construction of roads – hence the name.

As a granular crushed aggregate, it must conform to requirements set out by the Ministry of Transport – namely that it is between 0-40mm and made up of a range of crushed materials, including:

  • Granite
  • Limestone
  • Gritstone
  • Concrete
  • Basalt
  • Recycled materials including bricks and hardcore.

As it is incredibly strong, the right size, and has the necessary compressive strength, it is the go-to sublayer for roads, pavements, and driveways – among other projects.


Which projects need MOT Type 1?

MOT Type 1 is the ideal aggregate for the construction of roads, driveways, and walkways thanks to the varying particle sizes – these interlock and distribute weight evenly when compacted.

This creates a stable and durable hardcore base with excellent load-bearing capacity, perfectly suited to construction projects that must be durable and long-lasting, including but not limited to:

  • Over-site fills
  • Roads
  • Artificial grass base
  • Pavements and walkways
  • Trench fills
  • Driveways
  • Haul roads and highways
  • Garden paths and footpaths
  • Car parks
  • Patios and fire pits

MOT Type 1 in Wigan is also suitable for projects that require a final layer of asphalt, concrete, shingle, or block paving – making it one of the most versatile aggregates in use across the UK.
