In 2010, Clark & Kent Contractors revolutionized the BMX scene in the United Kingdom with the construction of the Windmill Street BMX Pump Track in Macclesfield, Cheshire. Notable for its innovative use of a block-paved start ramp and berms, the track quickly became a benchmark for modern BMX facilities. Now, in 2024, Clark & Kent Contractors have returned to enhance the iconic facility, providing an all-tarmac surface to elevate the riding experience and meet the evolving needs of the community.

Challenges and Objectives:

The project aimed to address several key challenges and objectives:

Surface Enhancement: The original track, while groundbreaking, required an upgrade to meet contemporary standards. The transition from block paving to an all-tarmac surface was identified as the optimal solution for improved durability, performance, and rider safety.

Community Engagement: Ensuring the project aligned with the desires of the local BMX community and Macclesfield residents was a priority. Clark & Kent Contractors actively sought input from stakeholders to tailor the enhancements to meet the needs of both experienced riders and newcomers.

Sustainability: The project embraced sustainable practices, minimizing environmental impact during construction and ensuring the longevity of the new tarmac surface.

Construction Process:

The transformation began with meticulous planning and consultation with BMX enthusiasts and local authorities. The construction process included:

Site Preparation: Thorough assessment and preparation of the existing track to facilitate a smooth transition to the new tarmac surface.

Innovative Tarmac Application: Employing cutting-edge techniques, Clark & Kent Contractors applied a high-quality tarmac surface to the entire track, providing a seamless and durable riding experience.

Quality Control: Rigorous quality control measures were implemented throughout the construction process to ensure the final product met industry standards and exceeded expectations.

Results and Impact:

The completion of the Windmill Street BMX Pump Track showcases the following outcomes:

Enhanced Riding Experience: The all-tarmac surface provides riders with a smoother and more predictable surface, enhancing control and allowing for a more enjoyable riding experience.

Community Integration: The project's collaborative approach fostered a sense of community ownership, with local riders actively participating in the project's development.

Sustainability: By selecting a high-quality tarmac surface, the track is now more resistant to weathering and wear, contributing to its long-term sustainability.
