Designed for sustainable cycleway performance & value

NatraTex |

NatraTex offers one of the most cost-effective coloured hard landscaping choices for cycleways. With its full depth application, it remains durable when compared to other aesthetic finishes.

Key Considerations for Cycle Lanes and Cycle Paths

The difference between a cycle lane and a cycle path as defined by Greater Manchester Cycling Design Guidance & Standards documentation is that:

A cycle lane is “segregated from pedestrians but not physically segregated from motorised vehicles along the full length of the cycle lane.”

A cycle path is “separate from motorised traffic, but may be shared with pedestrians (e.g. Canal towpath).”

Across all cycling design guidance, it is widely stated that safety, coherence, directness, attractiveness and comfort are all key design criteria for building and maintaining a cycling infrastructure which is popular to use and successful in the community.

NatraTex Enables Successful Cycle Infrastructure Construction

Here are just some of the benefits of NatraTex:

  • Permeable & non-permeable Mix Designs
  • Wide range of colours options
  • Durable, robust and seamless surfaces
  • Provides a permanent, clearly defined & safe environment.
  • Low maintenance

A cycle lane, and by definition the surfacing, must be able to cater for all ages of cyclists and all cycling abilities. The route must be easy to distinguish and navigable intuitively. It must also be consistent in quality; offering route continuity and completeness from start to finish.

Cycling infrastructure needs a high-quality surface treatment application in order to lessen the number of times it is necessary to stop or conflict with other road users.
