Product Solutions

With over 450,000 visitors per year, the popular Twycross Zoo relocated their existing visitor car & coach parking facilities so as to build a new visitor centre development. These new car & coach parks and their access roads were required before commencement of the new development to ensure that zoo remained open throughout.

6720m2 of BodPave™ 40 were specified for the heavier more regular car, coach and vehicle access routes through the park with variations on grass & gravel surfacing as dependent on application. BodPave™ 40 grids are designed to withstand very high loads including regular coach traffic and allow the surface to look natural (grass) whilst providing a strong reinforced surface that will not deform

BodPave™ 40 was used in conjunction with GrassProtecta™, which was specified for the reinforcement of the car parking areas. Read here the Twycross Zoo case study using GrassProtecta™ .
