Edware Road, London

Client: Westminster Council and Transport for London
Type of works: supplied grey highway blister paving

Edware Road is home to a slew of businesses, including many shops, restaurants and cafes. It is also a major traffic route into the heart of London. During rush hour, more than 3,400 vehicles use Edware Road every hour.

Part of Westminster Council and Transport for London plans to make physical improvements to the area meant significant tactile paving enhancements was a strict requirement. 

Working alongside Ringway Jacobs, Visul’s grey highway blister paving was specified as the preferred solution, chosen because the tiles are more durable and hard wearing than inferior systems and would visually harmonise with the surrounding environment. Working closely with the client to colour match tiles and substrate demonstrates Visul’s ability to tailor products to meet specific client requirements. 

Moreover, due do inclement weather conditions Visul supplied their robust moisture tolerant fixing adhesive which meant the scheme was finished on time and to the complete satisfaction of the client. The adhesive is a non-shrink, solvent free system which adheres to a wide range of construction products. 

Regarding application of the tile, Mr Rivers, of Ringway, said "our sub contractor have found it very simple and beneficial to use: the Visul tactile is more flexible and therefore doesn’t require heat prior to application. We were keen to adopt this method as it negates the need for heating equipment and therefore reduces costs and safety risks to operatives.”
