Seamless surfacing for pathways at Battersea Park

Over 800m² of Addagrips Terrabase Classic Resin Bound porous surfacing was installed to rejuvenate the pathways in Battersea Park on the banks of the River Thames, London.

Addagrip was contacted by the client Barhale Ltd regarding the resurfacing of existing pathways in the Grade II listed, 200-acre urban green space in the London Borough of Wandsworth. The requirement was for overlay of existing pedestrian walkways with a smooth, low maintenance, seamless finish in a colour similar to adjacent paths.

A special blend of aggregates was required which Addagrip named ‘Battersea’. The natural stone that helped create this bespoke resin bound colour was supplied by Long Rake Spar and was installed with their Terrabase system as a Terrabase Classic paving.

Long Rake have a large offering of specialist dried aggregate granules that are perfect for use in resin bound paving.

The initial phase of the pathway resurfacing was carried out in June 2018 by Addagrip approved contractor Total Protection Ltd who installed a total of 450m² of the Terrabase Classic.

A further 430m² of the resin bound surfacing was installed in a different area of the park by Addagrip approved contractor O’Hara Bros Surfacing Ltd in September 2018.

The finished surface offers a practical, porous paving option suitable for all weather access to this busy park and the bespoke colour blend provides a great match to the adjacent surfacing.
