Scheme A127 Rayleigh June 2008, New carriageway gullies; drainage system installed within footway.
Trench excavated and a dry standard kerb mix laid in trench. Two pallets of ‘DuraKerb’ brought to site on Transit flat back, no lifting equipment used. ‘DuraKerb’ laid to line & level with approximately 40 mm of kerb mix going up inside the kerb. A dampened kerb mix used as haunching. Two men laid 70m of ‘Durakerb’ in 2:15 hrs (first time using DuraKerb).
Productivity with ‘Durakerb’ was found to be 3/4 times greater and reduction in traffic management costs.
