Road Grading

Road grading is a fundamental aspect of road construction, maintenance and rehabilitation, playing a crucial role in ensuring the safety, durability and efficiency of road infrastructure. This comprehensive process involves meticulously manipulating the surface of roads or terrains to achieve specific elevations, slopes and profiles conducive to optimal drainage, vehicle traction and overall usability.

At Vic Graders, we offer road grading services for new and existing roads to smooth the road’s surface, eliminating irregularities and bumps that could impede vehicle movement and compromise safety. By levelling the surface, road grading enhances driving comfort. It reduces wear and tear on vehicles, ensuring a smoother and more pleasant travelling experience for road users.

Why Motor Grading?

Proper road grading is crucial for efficient water runoff, preventing the risks of ponding, erosion and waterlogging that can compromise the road’s structural integrity and pose safety hazards for drivers. It is achieved by establishing optimal slopes and grades to channel rainwater away from the road surface, preventing potential damage and ensuring that the road remains functional even during heavy rainfall or adverse weather conditions. Consistent road grading enhances the safety of the road, especially during challenging driving conditions such as rain, snow or ice. 

Regular grading significantly extends the lifespan of road surfaces, preserving their integrity and reducing the need for costly repairs or reconstruction.

Planning and Control

How it Works

Vic Graders - Civic & Residential Grading - Melbourne


This phase entails assessing the current condition of the road, terrain characteristics and understanding traffic patterns.



The design encompasses factors such as road width, slope gradients, and curvature to optimise safety and functionality.



Precision grading techniques are employed to achieve the desired elevation and alignment, ensuring proper runoff and stability.


Quality Control

Quality control is integral to the grading process, guaranteeing that standards are met and maintained during the process.
