As part of the plan to upgrade Bramford Gardens, a pocket park near Wandsworth, improvements included reconstruction of the existing separate cycle path and foot path to provide a new shared pedestrian cycle path route, together with repainting of existing railings, planting trees, turfing, renewing signs and installing new benches.
Wandsworth Borough Council were looking for a decorative, hard wearing surface with good permeability for adequate drainage to create the new pedestrian and cyclist access to the park. Good slip resistance and easy maintenance was a key requirement.
Addagrip approved contractor O’Hara Bros Ltd dug up the existing cycle route and pedestrian path to create a wider shared route and installed 200m2 of BBA approved Terrabound Resin Bound surfacing in a 10mm Trent blend. 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 to make the useable area 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.
