City Beach, Southend-on-Sea

An award-winning scheme in Southend-on-Sea. Devised by Southend-on-Sea Borough Council, the Better Southend project addressed issues such as serious traffic congestion, poor circulation for pedestrians and cyclists, and a low standard of public spaces by developing a coordinated set of traffic management schemes and creating a series of civic spaces that enliven the public realm and make the town centre more welcoming for residents and visitors. Hardscape worked closely with architects Grontmij, London in the supply of Kellen Breccia Grigio and Tagenta C-E paving materials.
