Engineering Meets the Arts
Taking on the challenge of creating a safety zone for Walnut Street in Cremorne, MPS Paving Systems (MPS) was able to produce a result that is as spectacular as it is practical.
Tasked with creating a laneway that was aesthetically pleasing for pedestrians and business owners, and also function as a traffic safety guide, MPS partnered with artist Tom Civil to come up with a solution.
Combining their StreetBond™ system with the considerable talents of this accomplished artist, MPS surfaced Walnut Street with a unique design that reflects Australia’s unique colour palette and topography.
StreetBond™ is a surfacing system that can be used to add colour and designs to asphalt and concrete. Based on leading edge polymer, cement and epoxy technologies, it is designed to withstand a variety of weather and traffic conditions, making it the right solution for the Walnut Street project.
Suitable for all kinds of architectural hardscapes and traffic management applications, StreetBond™ can be used to create highly visible spaces that enhance safety — and provide an opportunity for unique artistic expression.
Equally versatile is MPS Paving’s DuraTherm™, a decorative asphalt surfacing system that has stand out performance in high-traffic areas. Durable and flexible, this thermoplastic material will maintain its colour and integrity for many years.
DuraTherm™ is quick to install and laboratory and field tested. The reflective beads utilised ensure high visibility, and, because it is inlaid into imprinted asphalt, the durability is exceptional.
