Miles Macadam has been brought in to lay 20,000 m2 of its proprietary Hardipave grouted macadam for the surfacing of the North Plaza, an area to be used as a bus terminal during the construction phase of the power station.

Hardipave was specified as a fuel-resistant surface course with a high tolerance to deformation, heat and abrasion.

The use of Hardipave represented a value engineering solution with a cost saving of more than £200,000 when compared to the originally specified concrete design, Miles Macadam said.

Hardipave was also used for the Crossrail bus depot at Paddington Bus Station and the multi-storey coach park at Wembley.
