Construction is underway to build a new BMX track facility which will provide a focal point for a Runcorn park.
Halton Council has worked with Windmill Hill Big Local, Viridor Credits Environmental Company and the Landfill Communities Fund to secure funding for the £62,000 project.
The BMX pump track is being developed at Phoenix Park by contractor Horticon, which is expected to complete the attraction in time for a July opening.
Councillor Ron Hignett, Halton Council’s executive board member for the physical environment, says: “It will be a great new focal point for the park, which recently saw play equipment getting a disability friendly facelift.
“This is yet another good instance of Halton Borough Council regenerating the area.”
A pump track is a circuit of rollers, banked turns and features designed to be ridden completely by riders ‘pumping’, which involves creating momentum by up and down body movements instead of pedaling or pushing.
