Have you notice anything different about the pavement outside Marks and Spencer in King Street?

HammersmithLondon is trying out a new pavement protection programme, which involves the application of a new advanced cleaning product which has given the surface a new sparkle and will stop chewing gum sticking to the pavement, repel stains and generally keep the area clean.

As King Street is an area of high footfall, the paving often looks dull and suffers from chewing gum becoming trodden into it.

With the application of this new product, chewing gum will not stick to the surface and can easily be flicked off with a standard pavement washing.

As well as that, stains such as oil, drinks and other surface contaminants cannot sink into the stone and will just float on the surface ready to be washed off, leaving a cleaner and brighter pavement behind.

The trial area outside Marks and Spencer has been deep cleaned and restored to its original condition, and after one application it should stay at that level of cleanliness and gum resistance for up to five years.

HammersmithLondon is inviting local shoppers to take a look at the pristine paving and pass on their thoughts as the organisation is hoping to spread the clean-up across the Hammersmith town centre and says it and would really benefit from the feedback.

You can give your feedback online at HammersmithLondon Pavement Protection Programme.
