The BMX Pump Track at Standon Bowers' Outdoor Eduction Centre was constructed on behalf of Staffordshire County Council and was aimed mainly at primary school children.
Access to the BMX track site is through a private farm, so great consideration was given to the rural surroundings in the design and construction.
The project took four weeks to complete with Clark & Kent Contractors overseeing all elements of work. The track is cut into a sloping site enabling a design that helps combine BMX rider safety with a fast flowing circuit.
Clark & Kent provided a tarmacadam start hill, berms and return paths along with a limestone track surface. In addition to the pump track, we installed a 90 metre stone footpath and fence.
Formerly the Standon Boys' Farm Home, established in 1885, Standon Bowers offers state-of-the-art facilities and activities to challenge and engage its students.
Since completion, the BMX Pump Track has given the Outdoor Education centre the provision to help develop life skills and confidence building among its students.
