How to use "Macadamised" in context?
When the streets are wet and icy, it's nice to turn to the pavement that's been macadamised. The process of macadamising involves spraying a layer of fine, hard aggregate over the surface of a road. This gives the surface a non-slippery quality, which is great when it's wet and icy outside. The process is very efficient, so the roads stay clean and clear, without all the snow and ice buildup.
