Addagrip’s BBA-approved Terrabound Resin Bound porous surfacing has been installed at Constitution Hill outside Buckingham Palace as part of the new East-West Cycle Superhighway in central London.
Working for Transport for London, F M Conway were responsible for the installation of a new stretch of the cycle path that runs alongside Green Park to provide a safe route for cyclists from Buckingham Palace to Wellington Arch.
Terrabound Resin Bound surfacing was selected to provide over 2,200 square metres of porous paving that would be hardwearing and provide slip resistance for the cyclists.
The natural aggregate finish in a 6mm Rhine Gold complements the location alongside Green Park and will provide a low maintenance surface in this busy area of Central London.
F M Conway Ltd carried out the installation over a 9-day period working in one of the busiest tourist locations in central London and during a period of very hot weather. They started at the Wellington Arch/Commonwealth Memorial end of Constitution Hill and finished the last 185m stretch outside Buckingham palace on Friday 8th July.
Whilst the crowds gathered to watch the Household Cavalry ride up Constitution Hill from Wellington Arch St James’s to Buckingham Palace, there was also much public interest in seeing the team’s coordinated system of installing the resin bound surface and watching the transformation as it happened.
Oliver Stutts of F M Conway Ltd said: “Due to the high profile nature of the works, the finished article needed to be of a high standard and the Addagrip Terrabound material certainly provided.”
