Case study

Chapel Street Filaments, Salford

Updating TAC-GRID due to transport network change


Chapel Street Filaments, Salford


Red controlled crossing required changing to beige/buff uncontrolled crossing


A quicker solution to traditional methods – saves cost and minimises disruption


The Filaments is in the heart of Salford’s bustling Chapel Street corridor, providing access to bars, restaurants and culture venues, whilst also being on the doorstep of Spinningfields and Salford Central train station.

Due to a change on the transport network system, UDP Civils via Salford City Council requested that a previous TACGRID red controlled crossing be changed to a beige/buff uncontrolled crossing.



Due to the make-up of the TAC-GRID tactile material, the current red application could be overlaid with the new beige colour. As there was no need to dig out the old tactile system, there was no costly traffic management and minimal disruption to pedestrians and vehicle traffic.

Installation in 25 minutes – no traffic management and minimal disruption


The installation was quick and easy with no disruption or road closures. The application of the TAC-GRID tactile material took 25 minutes and was ready for pedestrian traffic within 45 minutes.

This is a much quicker solution to traditional methods which would most likely have required the need for traffic management, waste removal and a much longer installation time.
