Falkirk City Council invited us to tender for the Zetland Park BMX pump track project at Grangemouth due to our experience in the sector as BMX track specialist contractors and our comprehensive list of completed projects.
We were selected after a competitive tender, offering the most economically advantageous turnkey solution. Initial consultation was undertaken, and minor design tweaks to the Zetand pump track design were implemented to include the wider expert straight.
The track-building project was an eight-week programme and involved several constraints, including root protection measures for trees and a low water table. We used an aluminium trackway to the site to reduce the impact on the land and ensure the project came in on time with minimum disruption to the park.
Completed in April 2021, the track is designed for expert, intermediate and beginner loops of all ages and abilities. The facility has helped in the regeneration of Zetland Park. We look forward to being part of more Scottish cycling projects.
Zetland Park pump track is located in Abbots Rd, Grangemouth, Falkirk, adjacent to the Grangemouth park's play area. It is between Glasgow and Edinburgh, and the area has many interesting monuments and castles within a stone's throw from the track.
Falkirk Council was awarded funding from Sportscotland to construct a pump track as part of the wider Lottery-funded Zetland Park Project. Partners in the project include Friends of Zetland Park, Grangemouth and Carrongrange High Schools, Falkirk Junior Bike Club, Grangemouth Triathlon Club, Al Massar and Central Scotland Regional Equality Council. Zetland Park Bike Library nearby will also lend mountain bikes for free.
