doosan excavator DX225LC ripping up old asphalt (india)

Doosan Excavator ripping up old asphalt on a road in West Bengal (India)

This paved road was poorly constructed with a very thin layer of poor quality asphalt (a lot of gravel with little bitumen).­ With all the heavy truck traffic, huge potholes formed everywhere.­ Hopefully they will build a better road.­
