Access for all in Anglesey – RonaDeck Resin Bonded Surfacing


The development at Cemaes Bay is being undertaken as part of the County Council’s £6.9m Development of Anglesey’s Coastal Environment Project (2009 -15) which aims to develop on-shore and off-shore facilities to maximise economic benefits and impacts from the coastline of Anglesey.

The project

As part of the Development of Anglesey’s Coastal Environment Project MWT Civil Engineering were contracted to create an ‘access for all beach’. The work involved resurfacing the area, improving access to the beach and installing new street furniture.

RonaDeck Resin Bonded Surfacing was specified for the resurfaced areas with a 1-3mm Brittany Bronze aggregate. MWT Civil Engineering excavated the area prior to laying the asphalt base on which the resin bonded surfacing was applied.

The new beach access is likely to attract many visitors annually and because of its proximity to the sea will frequently become wet, it was therefore necessary for any paving used to be slip-resistant and durable.

Ronacrete’s RonaDeck Resin Bonded Surfacing is a hardwearing surfacing system composed of a resin base and natural aggregates that offers excellent slip-resistance tested to BS 8204-6:2008+A1:2010 Appendix B. It can withstand heavy footfall year after year and is used in a variety of projects with high visitor numbers, including the ramps at Wembley Stadium.

Product and application

RonaDeck Resin Bonded Surfacing is normally laid on concrete or asphalt as in this project. The asphalt’s surface was open textured so RonaDeck Resin Bonded Scratch Coat was applied by MWT producing a smooth substrate for the surfacing.

MWT mixed the two component resin with a drill and paddle mixer and applied it by roller to the substrate. The aggregate was immediately cast into the resin and left to cure for four hours. After removal of loose aggregate, the surfaced area was ready for use.

RonaDeck Resin Bonded Surfacing is DDA compliant, a requirement of an ‘access for all beach” providing a level surface that is slip resistant and wheelchair user friendly. RonaDeck Resin Bonded Surfacing is also suitable for vehicle traffic.
