Due to significant community demand for the construction of a new pump track in Basingstoke, a public tender for the works was produced by Basingstoke Parish Council, and Clark and Kent Contractors was chosen to design and build the Beggerwood Park pump track.
Clark & Kent's favourable tender was evaluated on previous work, quality and cost with a heavy weighting on the company's preference for a lot more speculative up-front work in advance of construction to include consultation with user groups and the general public.
Beggerwood is an excellent example of a pump track that is modest in size and scale but has the features to enthuse BMX bikers from beginner to intermediate level.
The Beggarwood pump track construction work was completed in just three weeks. The track was inspected by Rospra before it was handed over on time and under budget. Since construction, the pump track has been extremely busy and is a valuable addition to the park.
