QUARRIES

Quarrying is the nucleus of the Road Metals operation and we work New Zealand-wide on contracts of every size.

Road Metals have permanent quarry sites at Clyde, Wanaka, Dunedin, Hyde, Oamaru, Twizel and Christchurch.

We grew by servicing the lower half of the South Island, and expanded on that foundation to the point where we can now service the country from top to bottom.

Where we do not have a permanent quarry, the area can generally be serviced by utilising river based sites where regional council consent has been obtained for the use of Road Metals mobile crushing plants.
