As part of the Biralle Park Master Plan (revised 2019), a pump track in the south-west corner of the park was included to enhance the quality of the informal recreational opportunities available in the precinct.
The council committed a budget allocation in the 2019-2020 budget to complete stage 1 of the pump track.
Trail Scapes has been awarded the contract to construct the first section of the pump track in the vacant land next to the BMX and Hockey Facility in Silva Drive.
The plan is for the track to be built in two parts, stage 1 early in 2020.
The second stage will be budget dependent.
The contractor has put forward three proposed options for the pump track design.
The images below and in the document library show the siting of the pump track, what an initial stage would look like and then the three proposed options for the entire track (stages 1 and 2).
- Option 1: This is the contractor’s preferred option as being suitable for racing and has several transfer-line options for users.
- Option 2: This option offers an extra straight for jump options but not as many transfer lines.
- Option 3: This has a good combination of left and right turns with several transfer options. It could also be used for events.
The community is encouraged to provide their feedback on their preferred option via the form below.
