Llandrindod Wells Pier

The Project

Project Aim and Challenges

Powys Council approached POLYwalk™ to provide a new viewing platform, giving access to all members of the public, to the beautiful views of the Llandrindod Wells reservoir. Due to its location, being semi-submerged, the materials used could not be susceptible to degrading in water.

The viewing platform had to be both extremely water resistant and accessible for all members of the public. Timber had been used previously, on other projects within the area, but proved to have a very limited life span. The council, therefore, were looking for a product with a long-life cycle, high slip resistance and could be submerged in water. A POLYbridge™, with a design life of in excess of 75 years, was the perfect solution!

Steve Gealy of Powys County Council told us.We have used a number of POLYdeck™ product over the years. Their products have shown that they cannot be damaged by harsh weather conditions in the depths of the Welsh countryside such as snow, freezing or hot temperatures, wetlands bogs, lakes, or just muddy damp/wet woodlands. Other similar recycled products or even wooden oak products can be destroyed in such conditions over several years.
