Road being surfaced with tar

These are photographs of roads being tarred with the common material used for it - Asphalt. Also called bitumen, tar is a sticky, black and viscous substance, a derivative of petroleum. This material is used in road construction where its stickiness binds together various other substances to create a hard mixture used for surfacing roads.

Here the workers are spreading the loose tar on the road and the supervisor is shouting instructions.
