Use of KBI Flexi™-Pave on Trans Pennine Trail

An innovative solution to dealing with surface water erosion on steep gradients using a surface that incorporates recycled car tyres, stone and a polyurethane bonding agent to form a highly flexible and porous paving product.

Mar 25 2020

The Folly Lane stretch of the Trans Pennine Trail was an unused bridleway that formed part of the trail that runs through South Yorkshire. The steep inclines and surface erosion had left the path unsuitable for horses and walkers due to the unstable nature of the ground. In conjunction with Yorkshire Water, The Trans Pennine Trail team appointed KBI to regenerate the Folly Lane stretch using their KBI Flexi™ Pave material in order to make the path accessible for horse riders, and also to improve the overall access for pedestrians and cyclists. The images below show the eroded path section after repair using KBI Flexi™ Pave material and a further section that has been in-situ for 7 years
