Addagrip approved contractor Street Tree Care Ltd was invited by Westminster City Council to install a durable resin bound surface for established trees in a busy pedestrian square in central London.

The traffic island in Grosvenor Square, Westminster, was home to three large London Plane trees with problematic roots breaking through the central tree pit area and lifting the block surround causing a potential trip hazard in the pavement.

The requirement was for a resin based surfacing system that would give both high porosity and flexibility to address the issue without damaging the tree roots.

Addaflex-R, with its mix of natural aggregate and rubber was the ideal choice. A combined area of 50m2 of Addaflex-R in a City Grey blend was installed to the three tree pits resulting in a low maintenance, slip resistant porous paving that allows safe pedestrian access from the inner square to surrounding streets.

The work was completed in October 2020.
