Stratford upon Avon School have taken over their newly refurbished athletics track after works were completed by specialist sports contractors, Smith Construction.
The project to renovate the 400m running track was realised after months of planning by the school and its athletics club members. The Stratford Town Trust were the school’s main funding partners making it achievable.
The track surface and edging kerbs on the back straight were damaged following tree root growth beneath the track foundations, making it unsafe for runners. The red textured track surface was very worn after many years of use by athletes.
Smith Construction’s polymeric team were quick to rebuild the back straight and after only six weeks had successfully finished the coloured track resurface, using Polytan WS Porous track system. Now with new line-marking, the facility meets UKA and IAAF Standards.
Michael Clarke, Facilities Manager for Stratford upon Avon School, said “The school provides many sporting facilities for use by the local community and the newly refurbished athletics track compliments and ensures that our school is the premier sporting facility within the area”.
