New eco-friendly road asphalt trialled in Wanstead


Redbridge Council has trialled the use of eco-friendly road asphalt in South Woodford and Wanstead.

“Containing 15% recycled content, the new asphalt mix is produced at a lower temperature leading to reduced emissions during the manufacturing process and less virgin material used, leaving behind a lower carbon footprint,” said a spokesperson.

The road resurfacing programme – delivered in partnership with Kenson Highways – included Ashbourne Avenue, Cadogan Gardens, Charnwood Drive and Colvin Gardens.
