The Port Talbot Distributor Road is part of a regeneration plan for the Port Talbot area. The new road comprises a mixture of structures. Speed of installation was key to the project. Structural Drainage was needed for all the earth retaining structures. Traditional methods required manual handling equipment resulting in slow installation. The contractor looked at the innovative and financially beneficial Deckdrain product. The lightweight rolls come in off the shelf sizes and laid horizontally in progressive lifts. The composite has a filter to prevent clogging and a higher flow rate core.
