Charcon delivers cycle safety kurb to Superhighway 2

Charcon, the commercial hard landscaping division of Aggregate Industries, has manufactured and supplied 24,000l/m of Eco Countryside™ Cycle Kerb for the Mayor’s flagship Cycle Superhighway 2 (CS2) between Aldgate and Bow in London.

The contract follows a major investment by Transport for London (TfL) to make the route safer for cyclists and other road users. With more than 60 collisions involving injuries to cyclists recorded on the corridor annually, Charcon was commissioned by TfL to design and deliver a solution that would literally save lives.

In partnership with Ringway Jacobs, Charcon’s technical department designed an innovative 500mm-wide Eco Countryside Cycle Kerb segregation system as an alternative to granite kerb with a concrete block paving inlay previously used.

Being installed on both sides of the carriageway, the unique integrated system safely segregate cyclists from passing traffic, even when on the blind side of a lorry or bus. In total, 24,000l/m of Eco Countryside Cycle Kerb were supplied for the CS2 project.

The bespoke design offered a number of quantifiable benefits, including a cost saving of 25% and a 33% reduction in carbon footprint, versus natural granite imported from China.
