Cloud Trail Cycle Route

Customer Request

Sustrans requested that we re-surfaced a section of old trailway line to improve the surface for cyclists and walkers. The existing base was built up with stone and Sustrans wanted MAC to Tarmac the track.

Job Description

MAC was firstly tasked with a site set up to secure and close the path while under and set safety measures i.e., road plates over existing bridges, goal posts to identify overhead cables and security fencing. We then exposed the path to its original width and regulated the existing subbase and levelled this out, we then proceeded to lay another 75mm type 1 stone over the existing path to give this a firm base which was laid with our tarmac paver for precision and quickness. Once this was all completed, we then proceed to start the tarmac works and finished the path shoulder with a low ferity topsoil.
