Bridlington Coach Park

Situation & Target
The coastal resort of Bridlington required more coach parking to accommodate its increasing popularity, and C R Reynolds Ltd were appointed to construct the new car park.


  • Bulk earthworks: Site strip, excavation of existing topsoil with cut & fill to level site.
  • Geotextile and sub-base material and compaction
  • Installation of new service ducting and surface water drainage, including soakaways and interceptors.
  • Installation of new precast concrete kerbs, edgings and drainage channels.
  • Tarmac surfacing to coach park, access road and footpaths.
  • Construction of a priority traffic system on Limekiln Lane, Bridlington.
  • Installation of traffic signs, street furniture, street lighting and perimeter fencing.
  • Road markings
  • Landscaping works
  • Completion of highways works under rail bridge.

All works completed on time and to budget, to the delight of all stakeholders.

From our earliest involvement we nurtured an inclusive and collaborative approach to managing the works, ensuring all stakeholders views were understood and their expectations managed accordingly and appropriately.
It was essential that Yorkshire Ambulance service (in close proximity) access and operations were not affected, and that disruption to local residents and resort visitors was minimised.

Challenges & Solutions

  • Difficult Ground Conditions – innovative techniques to facilitate deep soakaway drainage installation and deal with the groundwater encountered were implemented.
  • Working Adjacent To Live Traffic – all works undertaken to the exemplary standards of our safe systems of work.

The Difference We Made

  • New coach park enables continued expansion of Bridlington resort
  • The client’s absolute satisfaction in our works
  • Diligent management of the works in a busy environment, meeting all stakeholders’ needs.
  • Essential continued access/operations for the Yorkshire Ambulance service.
