ANTISKID AT WORK

Mandurah Ghost Islands

> Safer Colour Delineation

> Vibrant coloured demarcation for safer visibilty and skid resistance

Requirements:

The City of Mandurah needed to replace the existing 1.6kms of red asphalt between the ghost islands on Catalina Drive, Lakelands, Mandurah without the hastle of having to dig up the old surface, particularly as there is a school on this road and disruption to residents and parents of children dropping kids off and picking them up had to be minimised, if not completely.

 

 

Solution:

Antiskid recommended OmniGrip CST coloured pavement systems be installed which includedthe installation of the unique Synthite aggregate which is compliant to the Green Building of Australia specification. This product was recommended because of its colour retention and skid resistance for the design life of the product, ensuring safer visibility and colour delineation.

Above all, the product is quick to install and is not disruptive to local residents or parent dropping off and picking up kids as the work didn’t start until half an hour after drop-off time and was completed to trafficable status well before pick-up time. All in one day!
