The work was carried out in a series of stages over a 15-month period and supported the pedestrianisation of the street, which was closed to traffic between 12pm – midnight to help maintain the village-like feel.
Alex Sampson, Contracts Supervisor at FM Conway, explains:
“The overall project aimed to improve the aesthetics of the street, delivering new paving, improved drainage, planting and lighting that encourages people to visit and spend time in the area.”
The use of high-quality techniques and materials, as well as a close attention to detail, was essential to ensure the project reflects Motcomb Street’s prestigious profile.
Alex continues: “We’ve widened and repaved the footway in attractive and highly durable Yorkstone, and skillfully re-laid the carriageway with tri-stone granite setts. The real difference, however, has come from several highly bespoke items that have been crafted specially – from drain covers embossed with the name of the street, to the creation of a carefully beveled granite drainage gully running the length of the road.”
