Project Strategic CHALLENGES
A new pedestrian enhancement scheme to an area from the high street to Tonbridge Castle. Steadline constructed a new pedestrian enhancement scheme to an area from the high street to Tonbridge Castle. This meant:
- Removing the old asphalt surface,
- Excavating to a depth of 450mm to allow for a full construction designed to take delivery and maintenance vehicles and replacing with different types of surface finishes.
The section from the High street was brick blocking paving with granite kerbs to form a new entrance for Pedestrians, delivery, and maintenance vehicles, followed by a large Central area finished in Resin bound material, with the final section at the Castle end finished in random sized paving. A new drainage scheme was incorporated with outlets through the river boundary walls dispersing into the river Medway.
Works to fit the drainage outlets and non-return flap valves were carried out using flotation pontoon’s anchored with safety rails to the river wall and supported with a safety boat in attendance. Included in the scheme were sections of new retaining walls, fencing, and Bollards to restrict unauthorized vehicles, as well as refurbishment of the existing Victorian river side Cast Iron lanterns. The lanterns were stripped down and repainted with new electric light units fitted to bring them up to an acceptable illumination.
More Projects From Steadline Ltd
Steadline were employed to complete staircase work and provide direct access to the waiting room from ground level.
As a result, our client was left with the wall fully restored and shielded from moisture on both sides ensuring its stability and long term integrity.
Teston Bridge is a 15th Century Grade 1 listed structure over the river Medway. This project was to repair the bridge after a vehicle damaged it.
