Fife Council utilises recycled plastic kerbing solution as part of sustainability approach

DURA Products has announced that its recycled plastic kerbing solution – Durakerb – has been installed in a range of projects by Fife Council.

The construction work, part of the local authority’s sustainable energy and climate action plan, involved the installation of 4km of Durakerb on the A909 in Cowdenbeath.

Made from 88% recycled polymers, Durakerb is described as offering a lightweight solution providing a ‘safer, greener and faster’ method of kerbing. The use of Durakerb by Fife Council has reportedly saved over 120,000kg of embodied carbon entering the environment.

Over recent years, Dura Products has been selected for a range of construction projects on a residential and regional scale by Fife Council. In 2020, 1km of Durakerb was installed in Kirkcaldy and Rosyth as part of residential pavement upgrades, and in 2022 4km of Durakerb was supplied to the A909 project, as well as residential upgrades on Dewar Drive, Leven.

Steve Bennett, MD at Dura Products, said, “Since 2003 we have worked hard to deliver over 500,000 units of our pioneering project, Durakerb. We would like to thank Fife Council for the widespread installation of Durakerb, and for leading the way in sustainable construction on a regional scale. We hope to work with more and more local authorities looking to plan and action similar strategies regarding energy and climate change.”
