Clark & Kent Contractors won the tender to design and build a new pump track near Telford in Shropshire.
North Shropshire Council tendered the project and appointed Clark and Kent as specialists to carry out the works. After the submission of a 3D BMX track design, Clark & Kent offered consultancy services. Work on the BMX pump track at Birchmeadow Park, Broseley included:
Setting out the pump track course.
Material placement and compaction
Landscaping scheme for the site
In addition to these works, Clark & Kent also carried outline marking, reinstatement works and various groundworks. The build time was three weeks, and the pump track has proven an asset to the park and an excellent facility for the local community. Plans for a BMX track at Broseley had been in the pipeline for years before Shropshire Council, and Broseley Town Council secured funding. Local people were quizzed on the required facilities, and all agree the project has been a great success.
