Lifecycle costs of gravel vs concrete paths

    Hi all,

    I am wondering if anyone has conducted a lifecycle cost analysis of gravel paths vs concrete paths, or knows of any reasonable industry reports that might be able to provide some guidance. I appreciate that there is nuance in levels of service etc, (I'm at a metropolitan Council in Melbourne, so levels of service would be toward the upper end) however it would be ​a useful starting point.

    Thanks in advance,
    Ross Gregory

    Hi Ross,

    I found this from a quick search, but it relate specifically to concrete. I'd be interested to hear what you find though. Best of luck.
