In 2020 Evesham Council were looking to implement an inclusive all wheeled facility for their community after securing funding and approaching potential suppliers for their thoughts and proposals. Clark and Kent then tendered for and won the Charity Brook Park Pump Track project in Evesham.
The track footprint sits in a sensitive woodland adjacent to a watercourse in the picturesque Charity Brook Park, a focal point for the town. After winning the public tender, Clark & Kent Contractors consulted with a mixed user group meaning that design was orientated around all styles of mini wheeled users. This proved to be a great example of the style of project we really enjoy creating for all users such as BMX and MTB users, skateboard, longboard and carver board users, scooter users, roller skate and rollerblade users, in addition to many other wheeled users.
C&K were selected for their professionalism and background in working with several prestigious clients on a variety of projects which needed addressing most efficiently with consideration to having a low impact on the surrounding areas and landscape. Some project-specific works included 2D and 3D cellular root protection and extensive bespoke tree protection measures.
In addition to the above general works included sensitive and selective tree works, importing materials, formation of materials and compaction, Tarmac surface and directional markings. Finally, a landscape and turf scheme was implemented to ensure that the ground was left with minimal disruption and enabled quick recovery times for the surrounding areas leaving the park aesthetically pleasing on completion of the works and ensuring public and user group buy-in.
Wychavon Councils expectations were surpassed with the finished product and the scheme which was rolled out in Summer 2020 has proven to be a great success with a variety of users enjoying the track year round in all weather conditions.
The lord mayor was present for the open day event and pictured above and Clark & Kent Contractors were instrumental in organising and implementing the opening event. Team Riders were present on the opening day to give demos of the track and free prize and gift giveaways.
The project was delivered on time within the 4 week timescale and under budget and we look forward to working with the client on potential future projects.
