Swinton Greenway Walking and Cycling Routes.

Swinton Greenway Walking and Cycling Routes.

Material Specification
1,200 tonnes of SHW Clause 803 Type 1 Sub-base.

Overview
Once completed, Swinton Greenway will provide an entirely traffic-free route between Swinton and Monton. The scheme will provide an attractive, safe and direct route linking existing key locations such as primary schools, high schools and a college. It will enable people to make the healthier and more environmentally friendly choice of walking or cycling over driving.

Client
Salford City Council.

Delivery Partner
The Casey Group Limited.

Construction
1,200 tons of Incinerator Bottom Ash Aggregate (IBAA) Type 1 sub-base supplied for construction of the new cycling and walking route between Swinton and Morton, surfaced with asphalt.

Benefit
IBAA is an extremely cost-effective material when compared to Primary Aggregates and BPUK is working towards a verified Carbon Footprint. There are also advantages logistically when using IBAA due to the low density of the material allowing for fewer vehicle movements as this gives volumetric advantages over primary materials.

Blue Phoenix now have a CPD, explaining the benefits of IBAA in greater detail, which can be found here.
