The Parish Council of Pontesbury approached Clark & Kent Contractors to construct a Pump Track in the Shropshire village next to the Primary School and children's play area.
Pontesbury village is in the heart of rural Shropshire and the council lifted a £10,000 grant from Awards for All of the Big Lottery Fund towards the cost of the new BMX track.
Careful thought was given to the design of the BMX Pump Track that runs alongside a busy footpath and bridleway.
Initial consultation indicated that a two-straight design would be most suited for the application with the safety of both the users and people walking or riding past a major consideration.
The two-week build by Clark & Kent included site clearance, earthworks, groundworks, surfacing, drainage, landscaping and reinstatement.
The project was completed on time and within budget constructed and the community was very pleased with the resulting BMX Pump Track facility
The BMX track is now open in Pontesbury and being enjoyed by many local young people. The track has been designed to be both an excellent introduction to the sport for new BMX riders and a challenging test for more experienced BMX bikers.
