Recycled plastic kerbing is set to be installed on local highways in Cheshire.
Pioneering sustainable construction innovator, Dura Products, has announced an extension to its partnership with National infrastructure contractor, Colas Ltd.
The partnership will see the installation of revolutionary recycled plastic kerbing solution, Durakerb, on local highways in the Chester and Cheshire West region.
The collaboration comes after a sustainability mandate from the government.
It stated that all regional public governing bodies, such as National Highways and local authorities, must boost construction sustainability principles.
By partnering with Dura Products, Colas can move towards reducing embodied carbon and energy use during installation processes.
Plus, it will also increase the environmental benefits of its local construction projects.
What is Durakerb?
Durakerb offers a lightweight solution to kerbing, delivering a greener, safer and faster installation process.
Made from 88% recycled polymers, the 6kg units are suitable for reclamation, reuse, and recycling after use.
So, this allows for circularity and lasting positive effects on the environment.
The benefits unlocked by Colas have included increased productivity, facilitated pre-assembly, demonstrated innovation, and mitigated safety and environmental risks.
Improving roads in the North West
Steve Bennett, Managing Director at Dura Products commented, “We are delighted to build on our previous partnership with Colas to include projects in the Chester and Cheshire West region. Dura Products previously supplied Durakerb units to Colas projects, including the A191 Silverlink and over two kilometres of Duradrain and Durachannel to the recently constructed A46 Stoneleigh Junctions in Coventry. We are very much looking forward to working with the team again on this exciting project to improve the roads in the North West.”
