The main vehicular traffic bridge over the railway line in Cosham required replacing. Portsmouth City Council wanted the new bridge to be functional and aesthetically pleasing.
Two challenging factors had to be planned for and overcome during the course of the project.
As this is a pedestrian thoroughfare, the Council specified a hard-wearing aggregate. With colours that gave a contrast to the industrial grey of the bridge, the Council opted for the tough-wearing DekorGrip resin bound system with a Natural Wicker blend at a depth of 18mm.
To enable the work to be completed in the allotted time, the DekorGrip team, through close communication and planning, allowed the contractor to store the resin at the nearby DekorGrip warehouse. This ensured that the resin could remain warm and dry whilst preparation work was done, and the close proximity to the site ensured that the product could be shipped as it was needed.
The install also utilised the use of a DekorTrowel, a multi-bladed electronic troweling machine for the surfacing.
With the help of the DekorGrip team, the project met its planned completion date, keeping the re-opening of the road and bridge on schedule.
The Council was so impressed with the advice, service and system provided that they specified the use of DekorGrip in a number of other projects.
