Station Street, Burton-upon-Trent
The £1.4 million Station Street Project forms one-third of the overall East Staffordshire Regeneration Scheme. The scheme was designed by Staffordshire County Council to help modernise public realm of areas, which in turn would help drive economic growth through increased footfall traffic in the retail sector. The roadway of the Station Street project was given a ‘flowing design’, to replicate the look of the nearby River Trent and help define pedestrianised spaces from delivery vehicle routes.
During conversations with Amey Consultancy, the client expressed a desire to ensure that a sealer was used on the new textured pavers which would safeguard against paver destabilisation and reduce future maintenance costs.
Staffordshire County Council did not have to look far for their sealing solution, with Resiblock having been successfully been used at the world-renowned FA Academy at St Georges Park. Resiblock were able to show through Case Study history the success of Resiblock ’22’ AF, which has stabilised and protected paving throughout the UK ensuring Asset Protection for Local Authorities across Great Britain.
