The primary objective was to enhance cleanliness and accessibility, aligning with the council's vision for the park's improvement.

Water of Leith

Water of Leith Case Study.png

KBI installed over 18,000m2 of Flexipave in a major project in 2023. 

This was part of a wider scheme to encourage more people to cycle in Scotland.

The Water of Leith Walkway is a pathway that opened in 2002 as a millennium project and was worn out in places.

 

The pathway that runs for 7km was no longer accessible for wheelchair and pushchair users. There was an attempt to refurbish the pathway with an alternative material which failed as a ‘bound’ product.

Flexipave provided an improved surface in a scheme which received excellent feedback

In 2022, KBI were tasked with the job in rejuvenating  the Trans Pennine Trail at Dunford Bridge. Through the use of Flexipave, the project encompassed the resurfacing of the trail, car park, and surrounding access paths.  

 

The purpose was to enhance the visual appeal of the location but also prioritise improved drainage and reduced maintenance, aligning with a larger scheme to relocate overhead electrical pylons into underground tunnels within the stunning landscape of the Peak District.
