The BMX Pump Track at Mile Oak in Tamworth, built on a recreation ground, is of an unconventional shape.
The BMX area had to fit in the corner of an existing playing field next to a football pitch in Mile Oak, Tamworth.
Clark & Kent Contractors worked alongside the Tamworth BMX Club and the local council to come up with a bespoke design that everyone feels makes excellent use of space.
The Pump Track includes tarmacadam berms, rollers and a jump box as well as incorporating the other usual limestone dust BMX track features.
The track makes a great starting block for every level of rider and is the obvious place to start for any potential BMX rider in the Tamworth area.
Hundreds of enthusiasts attended the opening of the new BMX track in Mile Oak in 2012, built by Clark and Kent Contractors — the team behind the London 2012 Olympic BMX track.
The BMX project was paid for with a £21,615 grant awarded by Veolia Environmental Trust through the Landfill Communities Fund.
Mayor of Fazeley, Rebecca James, who cut the ribbon said: "I would like to thank everyone involved in the transformation of the BMX track. It's a brilliant asset to Mile Oak and Fazeley."
Clients and Tamworth BMC Club are delighted with the finished product. Lichfield District Council supported the Mile Oak BMX track project along with Fazeley Town Council, Bromford Living, Lichfield and District Community and Voluntary Services, Staffordshire County Council (Mazeley Youth Club), Tamworth BMX Racing Club, Mazeley Wheels, and young people from Fazeley and Mile Oak.
