The scheme will also provide a range of facilities such as a primary school, a country park, playing fields, neighbourhood shops and interpretation and local centres.
To create a new access road off Weedon Road plus a new link road and junction improvements. Also to refurbish the surrounding infrastructure with hard landscaping to the central reservation, improved bus-stops and pedestrian crossings, tree planting and new street lighting. High quality natural materials were specified, providing a durable installation and a design statement.
A combination of Sandstone and Yorkstone setts were used at pedestrian crossings providing interest and visual signposts. We also supplied 4 km of Granite kerb and provided technical and logistical back up.
