EarthWorks Driveways Ltd | Dropped Kerbs

At EarthWorks Driveways Ltd, we understand the importance of creating functional and visually appealing driveways that meet your specific needs while adhering to local regulations. One essential aspect of a well-designed driveway is the installation of dropped kerbs. Dropped kerbs, also known as curb ramps or lowered curbs, play a crucial role in enhancing accessibility, safety, and aesthetics for both residential and commercial properties.

What Are Dropped Kerbs?

Dropped kerbs are specially designed sections of curbs that are lowered to the level of the road or driveway, creating a smooth transition for vehicles and pedestrians. These kerbs are installed to provide a seamless connection between the roadway and private driveways or pedestrian walkways. They are typically marked with tactile paving, which assists visually impaired individuals in navigating the area safely.

The Benefits of Dropped Kerbs

1. Accessibility:

Dropped kerbs improve accessibility for everyone, including those with mobility challenges, parents pushing strollers, and delivery personnel. They ensure a level path for wheelchairs, making it easier for individuals with disabilities to navigate the area independently.

2. Safety:

By reducing the height difference between the road and the driveway, dropped kerbs enhance safety for both pedestrians and drivers. This minimizes the risk of tripping and falling, particularly for the elderly and young children.

3. Compliance:

Installing dropped kerbs is often a legal requirement in many jurisdictions. Non-compliance can result in fines or other legal consequences. EarthWorks Driveways Ltd ensures that all installations adhere to local regulations, ensuring your property remains in compliance.

4. Aesthetics:

Well-designed dropped kerbs can enhance the overall curb appeal of your property. They seamlessly integrate with your driveway design, contributing to an attractive and welcoming entrance.
