Stoke Gifford Council gained funding and tendered for a specialist contractor to supply an updated cycling facility at Little Stoke Park near Bristol.
Clark & Kent Contractors won the work to remodel the existing modest-sized BMX track because they offered the most cost-efficient solution to the project and their unrivalled experience in delivering this facility style.
With the relevant health and safety accreditations in place, it was agreed that we would start by reshaping and adding features to the track before adding our Tarmac all-weather surface. This meant the track could be open to all types of users. The footprint gave a wide and flowing track that has proved very popular with local Longboarders and rollerskate groups.
Working in challenging weather conditions and a large distance from the site access meant deep consideration for the plant person interface and site logistics in addition to the site clearance and importation of material. Work included Shaping and compaction of material and sub-base, drainage works, Tarmac surfacing, line marking and a turf scheme.
Little Stoke is home to a large playing field with a 3G astroturf football pitch and sensory garden. The pump track makes a welcome addition with a modern, organic look and feel. The all user multi-wheeled facility is a great asset to the very popular playing field.
