Green-tech supply Aberystwyth's new car park

29 Oct 2019 | BALI Member News

BALI Registered Affiliate member Green-tech has supplied the materials for a new car park at the Vale of Rheidol Railway in Aberystwyth, Ceredigion.

The new car park was funded through the Welsh Government Rural Communities – Rural Development Programme 2014 – 2020, which is funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development and the Welsh Government (EAFRD).

Local company Tregaron Trading Services (TTS) completed the construction of a new car park for the Vale of Rheidol Railway at Devil’s Bridge which boasts space for 78 vehicles including disabled parking with an accessible path to the station and 4 coach bays.

Green-tech supplied 1927sqm of BodPave® 40 porous pavers which were used to form the new carpark. This is a cost-effective ground reinforcement solution - paving grids that simply connect together and can be filled with either sand, gravel or topsoil and seeded for use as grass pavers which provides a visually pleasant and stable surface structure through which grass can be grown, or filled with an angular gravel for use as a gravel retention reinforcement surface. Bodpave ® 40 offers a load bearing capacity of up to 150t/m2.

Alun Hughes, Engineer for contractor Tregaron Trading Services Ltd said;

“The existing railway car park no longer met the needs for the number of tourists who were visiting Rheidol railway and visiting Devil’s Bridge. We found Green-tech really easy to deal with and found their BodPave® 40 to be a great product.  It was easy to handle, simple to install and incredibly effective.  Our client was delighted with the finished car park, as were we.  I would definitely recommend Green-tech and this product.”
