The Reigate and Banstead Borough Council approached us to look at an old and derelict pump track at South Park, Reigate, and work with them to deliver a turn-key solution to a complex problem.
The area was an existing track that had long since fallen into disrepair. Local people had made some impromptu dirt tracks on the site that had become unusable and unsafe.
Our carefully worked designs for rebuilding the Reigate pump track took into account the location of several oak trees. Tree root protection measures were put in place at the council's request.
We began to totally rework the existing footprint and provide a new, engaging pump track design for Reigate that would suit all mini-wheeled users and abilities.
Work started in late November 2021 with some challenging weather conditions. Despite this, we delivered the pump track building project on time and within budget within the allocated scope of just three weeks.
This is an excellent transformation of an existing track that fell into disrepair and brought back to life with a complete Clark & Kent refurbishment. We used time-served specifications to leave the council and local users amazed with what can be done within such a short period with a modest budget.
Our team carried out a site strip of the footprint with hand digging around sensitive tree roots,
soil formation and compaction, an all-weather tarmac riding surface, safety signage, track markings and a Rospa Inspection.
I would just like to say a massive thank you for the installation of the pump track at South Park. C&K professionalism showed from start to finish and we have ended up with a pump track that the local community love. I would have no hesitation in recommending C&K to anyone looking at installing these types of facilities.
