Case Study

Project: Widnes Railway Station
Widnes Railway Station
Client: Network Rail
Contractor: J Murphy & Sons Ltd
Site: 1000m² Marshalls Keyblock 80
Resiblock Product: Resiblock ‘22’
Date: September 2011

The Site

Originally known as Farnworth, built in 1873 now has the status of an English Heritage Grade II listed building. To raise the stations aesthetics, the entire platform was paved in concrete block paving replacing the existing unsightly Tarmacadum surface.

The Challenge

It was recognised that cleaning regimes would serve to remove the jointing sand leading to paver destabilisation. In addition weed growth on the periphery of the platform would require constant removal.

The Solution:

Resiblock 22 was specified, a one pack moisture cured specialist pre-polymer urethane paving sealer. Also utilised on Aircraft Aprons to prevent jointing sand erosion from aircraft movement.

The Benefits:

Easy application, requires no specialist labour; Resiblock 22 binds the jointing sand preventing its removal from both natural and manmade forces. It will inhibit weed and grass growth from the joint whilst providing a significant degree of stain protection. Once cured, it remains fully elastomeric thereby accommodating the small elastic deflections incorporated in the pavement design.
