Integra continues to demonstrate why it is one of the leading porous paving products in the industry today. Made from recycled polymers this modular 70mm thick paving unit enables rapid construction of permanently porous paving areas which are structurally sound, durable and aesthetically pleasing with either a natural grass or aggregate finish.
The use of Integra interlocking porous paving to create over 400 parking bays within the Wilton Park & Ride scheme has proven to be an ongoing success. This facility provides a reliable and cost-effective means for both families and individuals to visit Salisbury city centre not only by reducing traffic volume on the main routes, thereby improving air quality, but also in freeing-up short stay central parking for the mutual benefit of both the general public and city retailers alike.
Around 5,800 square metres of 70 millimetres thick x 500 millimetres square UK-made Integra surface reinforcement system, in-filled with gravel and white demarcation inserts, were used throughout the tiered site during its construction leading up to the service being officially opened in March 2005. This project constitutes a significant part of the Salisbury Transport Plan and was jointly funded by the Government and Wiltshire County Council. Wilton comprises one of four such Park & Ride schemes, collectively providing nearly 1,700 car parking places, strategically positioned to access the city from all directions. Wiltshire and Dorset jointly operate the modern, low-ride, air-conditioned buses, on behalf of the District Council, six days a week.
As a direct result of the success enjoyed at Wilton Park & Ride a further 1,100 square metres of Integra interlocking porous paving are currently being installed at Hamblepoint Marina, Fareham in Hampshire. Made from recycled polymers, Integra is eco-friendly both in its creation and usage. This modular paving system includes unique intercell arches which ensure excellent rainwater dispersement in so doing minimising the risk of flooding while helping to protect the environment.
This lunchtime seminar gives an overview of current SUDS legislation and discusses such issues as porous surfaces, ‘CRATE’ systems, rainwater harvesting, water quality in relation to the Water Framework Directive, water treatments, oil interception and hydrocarbon removal together with bacterial filtration methods.
