Successful road kerb trial
Doncaster Council has improved the safety of its highway maintenance by swapping traditional concrete road kerbs and drains for recycled plastic units according to a report jointly produced by Doncaster Council’s Highway Operations and Highway Asset Maintenance.
Initial trial installation of new kerbing took place in February 2020 at sites including the North Bridge and Marsh Gate junction in Doncaster – a high stress area with typically high levels of HGV use and ‘override’ - after previous concrete units and restoration attempts had failed.
Following a full assessment over time, the highways team decided to accelerate their use in both safety works and in smaller construction projects across the local area. The report recommended the council ‘extends the use of the plastic kerbs to other suitable projects across the borough with a view to them becoming the norm rather than the exception’.
