Ultrascape Pro-Bed HS, Pro-Prime and Flowpoint ECO are being used to Revamp Nelson High Street, in an effort to breathe life back into the town.
A £2.3 million scheme to regenerate Nelson Town Centre in Lancashire and bring back cars to one of its main shopping streets is well under way to help boost trade in the town.
For a number of years residents and traders have been lobbying to have the road reinstated through the town centre to encourage shoppers back in to the town.
The project includes surfacing improvements, new lighting and street furniture and road realignment which will facilitate traffic flow for cars along currently pedestrianised sections of Manchester Road and Leeds Road. Additional parking is being created to allow shoppers to park within close proximity to the shops and leave easily.
Pendle Borough Council specified Ultrascape’s Pro-Bed HS Bedding Mortar, Pro-Prime Slurry Primer and Flowpoint Rapid Set Flowable Grout for use by the main contractor J & R Moran, to lay the granite and York stone paving.
The work was carried out in two phases using Ultrascape’s BS 7533 Compliant Mortar Paving System. J & R Moran were pleased with the performance of Ultrascape’s bedding materials in phase one and are continuing to work with it to complete phase two.
Ultrascape Pro Bed HS fine bedding concrete is being supplied in 30 tonne bulk silos. Perfect for large schemes where high volumes of bedding concrete are required at the touch of a button. It provides a bedding base that conforms to the strict requirements of BS 7533.
Ultrascape Pro-Prime Slurry Primer is specifically formulated to provide an exceptional bond of greater than 2N/mm² between all types of stone. It only requires the simple addition of water before it can be applied to the stone elements.
Ultrascape Flowpoint ECO, a rapid setting flowable grout, containing recycled glass, is an ideal solution for any sizeable scheme, enabling large areas to be grouted with this pourable material and simply washed away with no staining. It can be opened to foot traffic after only one hour due to its fast setting properties.
