Products supplied by Aggregate Industries’ commercial hard landscaping division have helped transform Twickenham’s town centre as part of an £8 million investment programme ahead of the 2015 Rugby World Cup. The plans included the regeneration of the town centre to make it more attractive and pedestrian-friendly for a town with the sporting heritage that Twickenham boasts.
The first phase of the regeneration included repaving areas of York Street, King Street and London Road, widening footways by up to 1.5 metres in some areas to reduce the dominance of traffic. Charcon supplied 8,500m2 of Willow Buff Natural Yorkstone, creating an attractive paving solution, contributing to the wider regeneration of the town centre and enhancing the townscape for pedestrians and cyclists.
Charcon also supplied a further 888m2 of Granite paving in Church Street replacing the existing paving, as well as a Granite sett road surface. Mike Davies, Major Projects and Specifications Manager at Aggregate Industries, comments: “We were very excited to be involved in this project. Charcon has a successful history of supplying materials to Richmond Borough Council, thanks to our quality products, unique laying patterns, and our reliability to produce and deliver to site. These attributes were once again displayed throughout the whole scheme in Twickenham, delivering on time and within budget.”
