Location: Morecambe Promenade
Completion: May 2017
As part of a project to replace and upgrade the sea wall at Morecambe Bay, the client, Lancaster City Council required a new surface for the promenade that would complement the development. The existing surface was an old HRA which was suffering from a longitudinal crack running down the centre of the promenade. Given the importance of the site to the local tourist industry, the client was keen to choose an aesthetic material that suited the clean, modern design of the new sea wall. The chosen material also needed to provide
an accessible, trip-free surface and offer a long service life with minimal requirement for ongoing maintenance.
