Our customer Addagrip provided a new multi-purpose path for pocket park improvements near Wandsworth, using their Resin bound Terrabound.
Part of the plan to upgrade Bramford Gardens (a pocket park near Wandsworth), included reconstruction of the existing separate cycle path and foot path. The idea was to provide a new shared pedestrian cycle path. Additional improvements also included repainting of existing railings, planting trees, laying turf, renewing signs and installing new benches.
Addagrip approved contractor O’Hara Bros Ltd dug up the existing cycle route and pedestrian path to create a wider shared route. They then installed 200m2 of BBA approved Terrabound Resin Bound surfacing in an attractive 10mm Trent blend. The aggregates used within this stunning blend were supplied by Long Rake Spar, who’s Grantex range of specialist dried and screened decorative aggregates are used within resin surfacing.
The new surface is porous, seamless and has revitalised the park with a decorative yet low maintenance paving. The challenge was working in a busy public place, maintaining the safety of the public and keeping work areas to a minimum. The area being resurfaced had to be as accessible to the public as possible during the installation. Park gate access and parking required the use of smaller machinery and storage points outside of the working area.
Wandsworth Borough Council were pleased with the new low maintenance, multi-function surface.
Work was completed 26th June 2019 in line with the 2 week programme agreed with the client.
