Interlocking pavers meet varsity challenge

Technicrete Double Zig-Zag pavers provide a hardwearing surface on the roadways and parking areas around the UJ Soweto campus.The University of Johannesburg’s Soweto campus is more than a centre for learning – it’s also centre stage for major social and sporting events which regularly attract big crowds.

To handle the heavy flows of vehicular and pedestrian traffic, Technicrete’s Double Zig-Zag concrete paving blocks were specified to form a continuous hardwearing surface on the network of roadways leading into and around the campus and university facilities, as well as the extensive parking areas.

A total of almost 15 000m² of the interlocking pavers have been used for this purpose. Three other Technicrete paving products – Double Bond and Bondbrick paving blocks and precast concrete garden kerbs – were used to surface and edge 1 000m of walkways threading through the busy campus.

Also part of the ongoing project has been the installation of Technicrete’s Armorflex concrete erosion-protection blocks to facilitate the channelling of surface stormwater runoff to an attenuation pond.

No idea whether we will get this here or not, but you have to admit that cars this size will make designing parking garages and parking grounds a lot easier.  All those malls that try to squeeze as many cars into as many narrow spaces as they possibly can, while charging as much in parking fees as they possibly can, would love this – they could double the money they make on parking fees!
