Charcon rides ahead of the kerb for Bristol City’s cycle scheme

Charcon rides ahead of the kerb for Bristol City’s cycle scheme

Charcon, the hard landscaping division of Aggregate Industries, has provided a bespoke, complex kerb solution for Bristol City Council for use throughout the City’s cycle ways scheme.

Bristol City Design Group commissioned Charcon to assist with the design, development and implementation of a bespoke cycle kerb for use throughout the City’s cycle ways, to accommodate a wide range of users and ensure the safety of cyclists and pedestrians.

To ensure greater accessibility for those who are less mobile, there were consultations between Bristol City Council, notably RNIB and Bristol Physical Access Chain (BPAC), to identify a kerb that would be suitable and ensure the safety of all users.

When designing this bespoke kerb, Charcon worked to unique specifications that the kerbs should be a standard 125mm kerb width to ease transition into standard highway design.

The design also featured a 50mm up stand, to give a clear height differentiation between the footway and the cycle route for stick users and guide dogs.

A 30’ angle was chosen for the safety of long cane users and to provide a manageable transition for those in wheelchairs.

As a result, the finished project maximised accessibility for cyclists and pedestrians.
