15th Anniversary of Resiblock at Port of Tyne
August 2017, saw the 15th anniversary of the installation of Resiblock, and more specifically the ‘Legendary’ Resiblock ‘22’ sealer for Concrete Block Paving (CBP), at Port of Tyne in South Shields.
Phase 3 at the Tyne Dock consisted of 15,904 sqm of CBP, and resident engineer at the time David Profit was keen to ensure the reduction of high level maintenance. The Port of Tyne Authority then investigated solutions to this problem and Resiblock overcame worldwide opposition to be specified for the site. Resiblock’s success at the 465,000 sqm Port of Salalah was a key factor in Resiblock ‘22’ being specified.
15 years on and the Port of Tyne paving is still stabilised due to the strength and durability of Resiblock ‘22’. With Port of Tyne handling around 650,000 vehicles a year (2013) it is clear to see that Resiblock ‘22’ has been put to test of the past decade and a half, but it is a challenge that has easily been dealt with.
