Pump Track Wales is located in an attractive countryside location at Rhayader in Powys. The track at Rhayader, officially called Pump Track Wales, was designed by Arran Cartwright Associates and built by Clark and Kent.
With the increasing popularity of pump tracks, the Welsh Government, Powys County Council, the Laura Ashley Foundation and the National Lottery Community Fund all contributed to the construction of "Pump Track Wales" by Clark and Kent Contractors.
Clark & Kent were chosen due to a vast catalogue of previous pump track projects. The company has built over 150 multi-wheeled projects in recent years. It makes Clark & Kent unrivalled in the pump track construction world for experience.
As the site runs alongside the river, particular attention was paid to nearby buildings and watercourses. Clark & Kent is highly experienced in drainage schemes to suit all land types, and our comprehensive understanding and knowledge of this particular area were noted.
The track was completed to our successful comprehensive specification as used across all C&K tarmac pump track projects. The mirrored design requested by the stakeholders presented various options and configurations. The track can be enjoyed by various user group disciplines, including BMX riders, scooters, skateboarders, and rollerbladers.
Construction was completed in just six weeks and delivered on time and within budget. When complete it was considered one of the biggest pump tracks in the UK.
From the day that we first met through to the handover of Pump Track Wales, Clark, Kent and the whole team have been nothing but considerably professional and trustworthy. The Team worked to promised deadlines and we were happy to down tools at any moment to interact with locals in a polite manner. I couldn't recommend more, especially for local volunteer groups who need that extra assistance.
