Stanmore Quality Surfacing Ltd, UK Power Networks, Surrey County Council and Aggregate Industries UK are now set to undertake the first full utility hand lay reinstatement trial, in the UK, of MacRebur Limited waste plastic asphalt mix.
SQS and UKPN were awarded with funding, from the Kent County Council Lane Rental fund, to expand on the testing Surrey County Council’s Laboratory and AI have already completed. The trial will be undertaken in 2 phases: 1 in Surrey and 2 in Kent. SQS will carry out a number of reinstatement’s on UKPN’s network using MacRebur’s MR8 plastic asphalt mix.
The estimated tonnage of material we plan to use will divert the equivalent weight in plastic waste, otherwise destined for landfill, of 1,028,560 single use plastic carrier bags.
As the trial progresses we will keep you posted, so watch this space!
