Tarmac conquers steep learning curves

6 Jul 11 When it comes to conquering challenges, the specialist surfacing gang from Tarmac National Contracting that was putting the finishing touches to the new Bournemouth Cycling Centre had a steep curve to tackle, in every sense of the word.

The team, which has proven track record of delivery, having also been responsible for the re-laying of the Mira test track in 1996, drew on its experience of surfacing steep gradients to undertake the new 250-metre cycling track. Tarmac delivered theĀ  project in partnership with Raymond Brown, the Hampshire-based contractor.

The new venue, which is funded by British Cycling and Bournemouth Council will also play host to in-line skating and running events and is the first facility of its type to be built in the UK since 1962.
