Kerbs, to misquote Frank Sinatra, I’ve seen a few.
Many years of construction site visits has provided sight of precast concrete, timber sleepers, in-situ concrete with formwork edge and limestone kerbs. I have seen brick edgings and even plywood. Rubble stonework has also been used.
In Ironbridge, appropriately enough, I spotted a kerb made from a material that I had not seen used before – cast iron.
I like the thin depth of the kerb profile and the toothed effect. It looks like it stands up to tyre wheel impact better than concrete.
I like. I do like.
