Wellington Park Porous Pathways

Project QuickStats

Location Wellington Square Perth, Western Australia
Stone Colour  Pitch Black 
Total Area 126 square meters
Date Installed 17-03-2021

This week our team travelled to Perth to work with our approved installers TIRO Earthworks, to install 126 square meters worth of porous paving on behalf of Civil Engineers Avanteers.

The project was in Wellington Square in Perth, on the eastern side of the CBD. The City of Perth has undertaken major works in renovating the park, beginning early 2020.

StoneSet porous paving was one of the works scheduled this month, to be completed towards the end of the project. Purportedly costing some a $18.7 million to upgrade, overall the works included “construction of a new playground, basketball courts, new paths and facilities and a place of reflection to commemorate the Stolen Generation.”

Porous Paving for Public Pathways

Not dissimilar to many other public paths, the requirements were familiar – The solution had to be porous and non slip, to both support the groundwater retention and reduce flash flooding and runoff.

The more obvious advantage was of course the beautiful natural stone look for the CBD park on the pathways and of course be non slip for the parks patrons.

StoneSet has recently been installed on a number of large park pathways across Australia, including Rockhampton City Council and Berrima community pathways.

The product is highly popular given the imperative upon governments to increase urban tree canopy cover and do more to reduce the Urban Heat Island Effect.

Gravel binding is not one of the first things that comes to mind when looking for porous paving ideas and particularly when considering paving over existing hard surfaces.
