Newmarket Racecourse

Newmarket is the historic home of horseracing, offering a treasure trove of sights and sounds for the racing enthusiast. Crowds flock to the racecourses on race days as well as to the concerts and festivals held in the grounds, putting considerable wear and tear on paving around the courses.


Two of Ronacrete’s hard landscaping systems were successfully applied to a concourse, roads and steps at Newmarket’s July Course.  More than 800m2 of RonaDeck Resin Bound Surfacing and almost 3,000m2 of RonaDeck Resin Bonded Surfacing were laid.


The products were chosen for both appearance and safety, with care being taken to ensure that the surfaces did not create any additional risk of slip in the wet or dry. Slip testing shows RonaDeck Resin Bonded Surfacing with bauxite aggregate to have an extremely low risk of slip in wet and dry condition and stopping distances for vehicles are reduced.  The potential for slip of RonaDeck Resin Bound Surfacing is generally low in wet and dry conditions and slip resistance can be improved by casting RonaDeck Resin Bound Surfacing Fine Aggregate into the freshly laid material.
