Huddersfield’s Canal Path
In recent years, the Canal & River Trust has helped to re-invigorate many sections of canal towpath and prevent muddy and water logged sections.
As part of the on‐going regeneration of Canal pathways, the Canal River Trust specified CONIPAVE RA as the new surface material for the towpath.
Due to the location, material for the project was transported from the offsite compound facility to the area by water borne craft. The ability of the product to be mixed and installed by hand allows the material to be laid in very inaccessible areas.
The key properties of the material are its high porosity and flexibility, making it an ideal way to combat water logging, water erosion and inefficient drainage.
As there is now no risk of standing water or ice, the path is now usable by a broader range of people including wheelchair users, cyclists and families with young children, who previously may have found it too slippery and dangerous to walk on.
The perfect solution for projects requiring outstanding levels of water permeability.
Recycled SBR truck tyre rubber and decorative aggregate blend, in conjunction with a flexible, moisture curing polyurethane binder to create a high strength surface.
