Hatton Access Road

Hatton Access Road

Background

Hatton is British Waterways Heritage Centre and a Regional Office located in Warwickshire.

This project involved the upgrade of the existing track which services the cafe. The existing track was in poor condition and these works were to construct an adequate roadway of bound material suitable for light to medium traffic loadings.

The works involved the scraping of the existing road surface and the infilling and compacting of all existing pot holes.

The new access road was to be finished with edging kerbs to both sides of the road. A 150 x 50 bull nose concrete kerb that complies with BS EN 1340 was to be installed complete with concrete haunching to form a perimeter for the canal side of the roadway. The installation of 150 x 50 flat concrete kerbs that comply with BS EN 1340 was to be installed complete with concrete haunching to form a perimeter for the embankment side of the roadway.

The existing road way was to be dressed & compacted to provide a 1:40 cross fall towards the embankment. The road way was to have a macadam surface laid on top of the dressed & compacted existing road way consisting of 75mm dense base course macadam to BS 4967: Part 1: 1988: CI 6.5 with a 50mm stone asphalt mastic wearing course.

The new access was to be furnished with the installation of 6 No. speed restriction humps, not to exceed 50mm in height.

The parking area adjacent to the cafe was to include provision for 1 No. demarcated disabled parking bay & 3 No. standard parking bays adjacent to the cafe.

Demarcation lining (Hatched) was to be included for the approach to the bin store.

Demarcation lining (Arrows) was to be inlcuded for the speed restriction humps.

The works were completed on time, to budget and to a very high standard of workmanship.
