Royal Parks receive first class treatment from Ultracrete

29 July 2014

Ultracrete’s Permanent Pothole Repair Cold Lay Asphalt Concrete and SCJ Seal and Tack Coat Spray are being used to maintain the Royal Parks in London.

There are eight Royal Parks in London, covering some 4,900 acres each attracting millions of visitors every year. The heavy volume of pedestrian traffic takes its toll on the park’s thoroughfares and regular maintenance is required to upkeep it.

Ultracrete’s Area Sales Manager for the South East, David Youell, met with the parks’ contractor Taylor Woodrow, and recommended Ultracrete’s HAPAS approved Permanent Pothole Repair to help maintain the sites. 

Permanent Pothole Repair up to 6mm fine grade is now Taylor Woodrow’s material of choice for ongoing maintenance work to repair the defects in the paths and roads within the parks. It is being used in conjunction with Ultracrete’s HAPAS approved SCJ which helps to increase the bond of the Permanent Pothole Repair to the substrate, as well as preventing water ingress and  the freeze/thaw effect. This helps to prolong the life of the repair and reduce ongoing maintenance costs.

Permanent Pothole Repair is  ideal for use in low risk roads, paths, car parks and driveways and has a high skid resistance value of >88 for improved road safety. It has excellent workability enabling it to be used straight from the tub even in cold and wet conditions. It is instantly trafficable, so minimal disruption to visitors as the site can be opened immediately after installation. Packaged in re-sealable 25kg tubs, with an ergonomically friendly handle, it is easy to carry and ideal for sites with limited access – perfect for this project, providing the contractor with a quick and effective method for repairing the defects. 

Taylor Woodrow commented ‘we use Permanent Pothole Repair because of its excellent workability and performance and it enables repairs to be completed with minimal disruption to park visitors.’

HAPAS approved products have been rigorously testing through the BBA (British Board of Agrément) to ensure they are ‘fit for purpose’.  Any product that has such approval can boast assurance of confidence and long-term proven durability. 

Ultracrete’s cold lay asphalt concrete is also available as a first time permanent solution in 6mm grade for footways and cycle tracks and 10mm grade for use in type 3 and 4 roads.
