Brief

The Enderby Park and Ride scheme was planned to help cut congestion on city and county roads, having a positive impact on the reduction of noise and pollution. The facility significantly reduces the traffic volume from Junction 21 of the M1 and provides an alternative mode of transport to the city centre whilst contributing to the regeneration of Leicester.

Solution

The main innovation on this scheme is the scale of the Sustainable Drainage System (SUDS) installed in the parking area. Rainwater is drained, treated for pollutants and attenuated in storage tanks that feed water run-off into balancing ponds to prevent flooding and create new opportunities for wildlife habitats.

With poor ground conditions and a high water table, Aggregate Industries, along with their engineering design consultants, helped identify the potential flooding issues as a result of the 6 hectare development. A shallow excavation solution was developed using a hybrid of Permavoid crates and aggregate sub-base attenuation systems. This allowed the cost to be kept to a minimum but meant that the attenuation levels were still sufficient.

We also supplied permeable paving to tackle surface water run-off from source as well as a non-permeable highly aesthetic Andover Textured block paving for the areas around the terminus building. Special painted blocks were also used to mark parking and disabled bays.

The flagship scheme has scooped a prestigious eco award at the regional Constructing Excellence Awards and coveted sustainability category in the CIHT Awards.

Customer testimonials

The flagship Enderby scheme aims to set a new standard of sustainable and environmental best practice for the design and construction of park and ride schemes across Leicestershire.
