Australia’s premier motorsport park, The Bend, remains dry and race ready thanks to the installation of heavy duty polymer concrete drainage channels from Hydro Construction Products.
Dubbed “Australia’s Ultimate Motorsport Park”, The Bend is Australia’s premiere racing circuit for all motoring disciplines. The 7.7km bitumen motor racing circuit located at Tailem Bend in South Australia is a state-of-the-art, world-class facility that delivers “an exhilarating experience for competitors, enthusiasts and spectators alike”.
Inspired by the world’s iconic race circuits, The Bend is Australia’s only circuit that complies with the latest FIA Grade 2 and FIM Category A standards. Developed by the Peregrine Corporation, construction on this $110 million project started in early 2016, with the main motor racing circuit completed in April 2018.
Looking to ensure the best, Hydro Construction Products, specialists in water management and drainage solutions, were commissioned to supply more than 3.5 kilometres of C3000 polymer concrete channels to be used along The Bend’s notorious GT circuit.
When it comes to roadways, nothing compares to Hydro Supreme heavy duty polymer concrete drainage channels. Used in hundreds of civil projects across Australia and New Zealand, the product’s inherent strength, chemical resistance, and ease of installation made it the only choice for this special project.
Also installed along The Bend’s circuits and pits, Hydro’s bike and wheel safe Ductile Iron Longitudinal grates and frames means supercars and motorcyclists are guaranteed safe driving conditions. This secure, rattle-free and robust drainage grate solution is reliable, functional, and meets the needs of this high-profile project with ease.
