EverEdge makes lions and dragons
Drivers travelling from Wales into England along the new 3 mile A5117 Deeside Park Junction road to the NW of Chester will receive a dramatic welcome - a 20 metre long lion! And travellers heading towards Wales will be welcomed by a huge 17 metre high dragon.
Richard Waddell of Moore Environment was the artist and architect behind the scheme, with the work being carried out by Carillion on behalf of the Highways Agency.
The features are cut into purpose designed roadside embankments, and were formed using 400 metres of EverEdge galvanised steel edging, before being infilled with 10 tonnes of white marble stone pebbles. EverEdge was chosen over UV Polypropylene, Aluminium and other steel edging products for its strength, flexibility and scope of products available.
