Naylor Plastic Drainage used on Newcastle Racecourse

Lakeland Pipes successfully complete major project as part of an 11 million pound upgrade at Newcastle Racecourse.

Introduction

One of the largest independent sole stockists of Naylor Plastic Drainage “Lakeland Pipes” were successful in winning a major contract to supply drainage onto the new All-weather Race Course signed off in June 2015 with work expected to start in September 15.

Background

The British Horseracing Authority approved an application from the owners Arena Racing Company following a lengthy consultation period so following installation all flat racing will take place on an all-weather Tapeta surface.

All-weather racing has an important part to play in Horse Racing as areas of the UK see changes in impact of weather to their fixtures.

Market / Statistics

Kevin Allonby, MD of Lakeland Pipes says “continued growth in contract relationships have allowed us to supply direct from stock on short lead times to fulfil the short timescales of this project”.

Recent weather conditions that have impacted the North of England expect to see an upturn in projects as various building sectors review their drainage requirements and Lakeland Pipes are working closely with contractors to ensure they have a good stocking and logistical profile from Naylor Industries to supply to the demands of the contractors winning projects on short lead times in this highly competitive and responsive environment.
