Kerbing 101: Enhancing Safety and Aesthetics in Cambridge

Viv Construct Group takes pride in our expertise in kerbing, where safety and aesthetics converge to create harmonious urban landscapes. In this guide, we delve into the fundamentals of kerbing, emphasizing its role in enhancing safety and visual appeal in Cambridge.

The Significance of Well-Designed Kerbs

  • Kerbs play a vital role in managing stormwater runoff, directing water away from pedestrian areas and into drainage systems. Properly designed kerbs mitigate the risk of flooding, erosion, and water damage to surrounding infrastructure in Cambridge.

3. Defining Traffic Flow:

  • Kerbs provide visual and physical cues to drivers, delineating lanes and guiding traffic flow. Strategic kerb design contributes to orderly vehicular movement, reducing congestion and enhancing road safety in Cambridge.
