St Luke’s Road, Telford
To carry out surfacing repairs on a difficult to access and badly deteriorated road in Ironbridge, Telford.
St Luke’s Road in Ironbridge, Telford is difficult to access, with the road width narrowing to 2.5m along with steep gradients.
The only two access points at either end of the road were over 750m apart, with historical walls running alongside the road. The site had required maintenance for a number of years, however a solution could not be identified due to traditional surfacing techniques not being suitable given the access challenges.
Rejuvo JPCS recommended the BBA HAPAS approved carriageway product, Rejuvophalt.
This is a hand laid, cold-applied bituminous emulsion-based mixture, for use as an overlay surface treatment in areas of limited access.
It provides a uniform overall appearance on existing bituminous surface courses that have been subject to a high number of reinstatements and patching, or are showing signs of early deterioration such as fretting or minor raveling.
Our specially designed Rejuvokit was ideal for the narrow single-track residential road. All of the required plant and material for the project was loaded onto a single vehicle to be transported to the site. A wheeled mixer that was purposefully designed for use on steep gradients was used to mix the material on site, to then be hand applied. A larger operational team was deployed to overcome the impact of pushing the mixer over long distances between the two access points. The combination of the Rejuvophalt product and our Rejuvokit meant installation could be carried out very quickly, with minimal disruption for the local community.
