Clark & Kent Contractors were approached by members of Christleton Parish Council in Cheshire with a budget in place to build a tarmacadam scooter Pump Track for young people.
Extensive plans were drawn up, including 3D designs, for the council to evaluate before going ahead with the project.
The pump track design is for a relatively small circuit but with plenty of hills and bends incorporated to test scooter rider skills to the full as well as provide a fun track that is a pleasure to ride.
The skills scooter track has four straights that were designed to fit into the parcel of selected land as efficiently as possible.
Expert in BMX track building from Clark & Kent Contractors liaised closely with local councillors and young riders to ensure the finished scooter track met the needs of the local community.
A typical drainage scheme was incorporated into the project as well as the usual groundworks and specialist surfacing to ensure the finished track performed well in all weathers.
The scooter track at the Christleton playground is at King George's Field off Little Heath, Chester and is now well used by local youngsters.
The track has proved to be a great success for the parish and has attracted plenty of interest from local young riders and their parents.
The pump track is even featured on the Mums in the Know website where the facility is described thus:
"The track looks great — it's a single tarmac track that loops around a couple of times and, while not huge, has plenty of hills and dips to keep things interesting."
