What is Driveline Priora Block Paving?

Driveline Priora Block Paving is Marshalls' innovative solution to urban drainage and pavement stability issues. 

It is a type of concrete block paver that integrates Marshalls' patented unique nib design, allowing for the creation of voids between the blocks. These voids, in conjunction with a specially calculated sub-base, facilitate the quick removal of surface water, channelling it back into the earth's subsurface. 

This design not only enhances surface stability but also mitigates flood risk without compromising structural performance.

  • Mitigates Flood Risk: Acts as a source control SUDS solution, significantly reducing the chances of urban flooding.
  • Sustainable and Efficient: The system removes the need for additional linear drainage systems, lowering construction costs and environmental impact.
  • Improves Water Quality: The Priora system not only manages water quantity but also improves water quality by filtering water back into the ground.
  • Avoids Planning Permissions: Its effectiveness in managing surface water can bypass the frustrating planning permission process for drainage.
  • Enhanced Durability: The innovative nib design and the use of a specially prepared sub-base enhance surface stability without compromising the pavement's structural performance.
