B822 Kippen, Scotland, UK
Crack Infill On Dangerous Roads
The B822 near Kippen, Scotland is a remote country road that is subjected to extreme weather including being completely covered in snow for the majority of the winter.
The Road Condition
The road reinstatement that was initially undertaken, following utility works, were deemed unsatisfactory and were in danger of causing rapid degradation of the road creating safety hazards to users of the road.
Scottish Water were faced with the prospect of completely removing the road surface, at great cost, if they could not find an alternative repair method that would be effective and durable.
Scottish Water’s search led them to Stirling Lloyd’s Safetrack Crack Infill product which was selected to provide a permanent first time reinstatement.
Quick but durable solution
Its durability meant that Scottish Water could be confident in the longevity of the rein statement. In addition, as the product requires no ‘specialist skills’ or “hot trades” to apply the material the works were carried out by the utility company’s own operatives.
The use of Stirling Lloyd’s advanced road repair solution saved Scottish Water the time and cost involved in resurfacing the road and dramatically improved the standard of the reinstatement.
