Clark & Kent Contractors were selected to supply and install a multi-use BMX Pump and Scooter Track at the Parklands in Ellesmere Port.
Included in the tender were numerous consultation events to develop key design and implementation strategies.
The plan to create a BMX track at the Parklands, which is located off Valley Drive, was forged by the local Our Place Neighbourhood Action Group and quickly followed through with full consultations with neighbours and nearby residents.
Acting as a subcontractor on behalf of Cheshire West and Chester Council, the track was constructed in a four-week period in very adverse weather conditions.
The BMX track uses the cascade of the land very well and includes a wide variety of obstacles to keep it varied and exciting for the BMX riders.
A full tarmacadam surface was provided using specialist techniques, and the track is accessible for a wide range of users from micro-scooters through to MTBs and in all weather conditions.
The state-of-the-art BMX track in the Parklands area of Little Sutton was officially opened with a special celebratory event.
The £170,000 project also saw major improvement works to local footpaths and was the result of years of work led by the council's Our Place team in partnership with Groundwork Cheshire.
The project was funded by FCC Environment Ltd through the Landfill Communities Fund administered by WREN, the Ellesmere Port Area Partnership Board, Cheshire West and Chester Council and others.
WREN is a not-for-profit business that awards grants for community projects and The Landfill Communities Fund is an innovative tax credit scheme that allows operators of landfill sites to contribute money to organisations engaged in community improvement works.
The BMX facility has been applauded for making the best use of the existing site and for providing an exciting, attractive and demanding new facility for BMX riders.
The creation of a network of new pathways in the area was carried out by County Landscapes and gives greater access to pedestrians and cyclists.
The paths network now forms part of the Ellesmere Port Greenway which is a 'green loop' of pathways and cycleways that now stretches to more than 50 kilometres in and around the Ellesmere Port area.
Details of the official opening are outlined on the Invest In Ellesmere Port website.
