In just 7 weeks Blakedown Sport & Play completed a new all-weather cycle track in the grounds of Pield Heath House Roman Catholic School. The facility, which will be available to other SEN schools and the local community, provides a safe area to learn to ride and a mobility training centre.
Following extensive site clearance and groundwork, a sub-surface drainage system was installed and the area levelled. Perimeter kerbs were installed and 1500m2 of tarmac laid with road markings for "Give-Way" and "Stop" areas as well as a bus stop with shelter, capable of taking a full size bus, so pupils can learn road safety and public transport safety skills.
A secure bike shelter and cycle stands were installed, plus wooden fencing and secure gates around the perimeter of the facility. Picnic tables, spectator benches, seeding, planting and landscaping completed the scheme.
