    Driveway extension-cost

    Driveway Contractors

    I'm looking for ballpark figures for a driveway extension. I understand it's difficult without seeing it in oerosn but would like to know how much cash I'm looking at having to save for it, roughly. It's to extend an existing single driveway into a double. The area to be converted is currently covered in loose gravel, about 120 millimetres deep, with soft earth underneath. The area is also sloped towards the house at about a ten degree gradient. It's around eleven square metres in total. I've already been granted permission for a dropped kerb and am awaiting a separate quote for that too.

    "I dont know how other people can price a job like this not knowing what is on the other half of your driveway?
    To price it properly anyone would need to see the project.
    One more thing anyone who does doesn't really know what they are doing.
    Hope this helps."
