Roads, roads, roads... They take us everywhere, even the furthest places. But when something happens on the road, like when there's roadwork or when there's a hole on the road or a speed bump that you didn't notice before passing over it, roads are the things that you swear at. 

However, it's not easy to build all the roads that enable us to go anywhere we want, easier than going on a meadow or a marsh.


But building roads isn't the only part, repairing and maintaining can be pretty difficult and time-consuming too. But, with the right product, it also can be pretty easy. So, here are 7 innovative road repair and maintenance technologies.

2. Stringless Curb&Gutter: The Power Curber 5700-C
