Porous Track to replace Redgra
Shrewsbury and Atcham Borough Council (now Shropshire Council) employed Blakedown to convert an existing 400m Redgra athletics track at the London Road Sports Centre into a polymeric athletics track with a porous system laid onto an Engineered base, including installation of a new drainage system. The updated track, used by Shrewsbury Athletics Club and Shrewsbury College of Arts & Technology as well as the local community, meets International Athletics Federation (IAAF) performance standards.
