Requirement

This contract involved the construction and upgrade of over 9000m of multi-user trail at Ickworth House for the National Trust. The project upgraded the existing infrastructure to allow improved access to the estate.

Challenge

Due to the high profile nature of this site and the funders requirements it was imperative that the trails were constructed to the highest standard of longitudinal and cross falls, to enable this construction tilting buckets were used to create the cross and cambered falls required for the trails.

The construction techniques required within the contract meant having to upgrade existing access roads and to construct new trails and paths.

Where existing trails were upgraded it was necessary to ensure that the existing surface was heavily scarified removing any traces of the potholed road that existed.

Once scarified new material was brought in to upgrade the surface and bring the levels up to the required height to allow drainage, this was then compacted and the surface dressed with grit.
