Rickmansworth: Public Footpath 029
The client: Hertfordshire County Council.
The brief: To improve a public footpath located close to Rickmansworth town centre, through upgrading the path surface and widening the usable area.
Our solution: We excavated the ground and created a bund with the arisings. The path was made of a crushed concrete sub-base with a concrete dust top dressing. A geotextile membrane was also laid and the entire path was edged using pressure treated softwood boards, secured with externally fixed pressure treated softwood pegs.
The result: The path was completed to a high specification as required by the client. The widely used footpath is now level and safe for all users, and compliments the surrounding landscape.
