Concrete from Hanson’s Milton Keynes plant has helped breathe new life into Silverstone race track in Northamptonshire, which has undergone a series of improvements ahead of the 2011 Formula 1 Santander British Grand Prix this weekend (July 8-10).

The plant in Old Wolverton Road, Wolverton, supplied a range of concrete mixes to main contractor Buckingham Group Contracting, who carried out the work on behalf of Silverstone Circuits Limited.

The concrete was part of the £27 million project, which includes the Silverstone Wing, the new pit and paddock complex, as well as alterations to the race track, and cements Silverstone’s position as a world-class sporting venue.

Concrete was required for the pit and retaining walls and an on-site precast factory was set up to produce the rumble strips.
