New surfacing system is ideal for cycleways
A new road surfacing system has been developed to provide “bright colour-fast skid resistant demarcation” for cycleways, bus lanes, traffic calming and other highway applications.
Developed by WJ Linkline Group, WeatherGrip™ is a cold applied coloured surfacing system which meets TfL’s specification for shared use of cycleways and has been used on London’s cycle superhighways.
WeatherGrip™ is described as “highly durable under vehicular or pedestrian traffic” which “makes it especially suitable for areas subjected to high wear and stress through braking forces”. It can be installed in reflective or non-reflective options and levels of skid resistance can be modified to suit the required application. WeatherGrip™ is quick and easy to apply and treated areas can be typically open for use within one hour.
WJ Linkline Group is a member of TfL’s fleet operator recognition scheme (FORS) and all vehicles and operatives involved in the application of WeatherGrip™ operate in full compliance with the scheme.
Launched in 2008, FORS is an industry led accreditation scheme which helps fleet operators improve operational performance and safety. FORS has recently received a Prince Michael International Road Safety Award for its contribution to improving fleet and freight safety across the UK.
