In 2017 Clark & Kent Contractors tendered and won the bid to build a new pump track in Bartley Park in Totton. Bartley park already had a large concrete skatepark and an engaged user group. Hence, we knew we would love to be involved and wanted to give the local riders a great provision to enjoy at Bartley park.
The Totton track was designed to be very user-friendly given the large number of young users and the existing park. The pump track has an outer loop with a line that runs in the shape of an S through the middle. There are various berms of different angles and heights, which keeps the track varied for the end-user.
The pump track is exciting to ride for all BMX riding levels. A variety of jumps are included, from tabletops, doubles, triples to step up and step-downs that keep it fun and give users the chance to practise a wide range of moves at various skill levels on the tarmac surface.
The pump track project was for Totton and Eling Town Council, and construction took around five weeks to complete. The usual groundworks, drainage and surfacing techniques were reused along with a comprehensive landscape scheme and a welsh fencing scheme to complete the project. Town Councillor Derek Biggs was pleased with the finished product, which surpassed the council's expectations.
