Piccadilly, between Hyde Park Corner and Piccadilly Circus, was resurfaced recently reusing the existing road surface.

To undertake the works with minimum disruption to residents and businesses, the resurfacing was done in two sections, Eastbound and Westbound, with each side being resurfaced over five continuous day and night shifts.

The existing surface was removed and taken back to FMC’s Heathrow Asphalt plant, where the reusable content was added to the binder course and then laid in the following shift.

The surface layer was FM Conway’s SureLane polymer-modified stone mastic asphalt, designed specifically for very heavily trafficked roads, and was reinforced with strengthening around the ironwork to provide a longer lasting road.

Through early stakeholder liaison, FMC collaborated with TfL to resurface part of Hyde Park Corner and allow Vodafone to remove some redundant shallow ducts that had been causing surface defects.

As with all surfacing schemes in Westminster, no diesel was used in any plant machinery, with Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil fuel used instead to provide up to 90% carbon reduction against diesel.
