Redeveloped Playing Fields with Hydrobrake

Blakedown were employed by North Tyneside Council to refurbish a large sports field at Burradon Recreation Ground, north east of Newcastle. The fields, used by the local community, Fordley Community Primary School, and Backworth Park Minors Football Club, required a complex new drainage system and were fitted with subterranean water storage tanks to accommodate the restricted main outfall.

Client: North Tyneside Council

Contract Type: JCT Minor Works

Value: £238,000

Built Time: 13 weeks

As part of the redevelopment, Blakedown also refurbished the natural turf bowling green on site, with up-graded drainage channels and redesigned walkways.

Location: Burradon, Tyne & Wear, NE23 7NG
