BMX track build project specification
- Site preparation: measure and mark out the area for the BMX track.
- Drainage (extra cost if required): drainage trenches will be used to drain the surface water from the track area to a nearby ditch or into a soakaway.
- Trench: 500mm deep, 300mm with 80mm-diameter flexi-coil, which will be covered with 400mm of clean free-draining gravel.
- Strip of teram to prevent the final 100mm of top soil from contaminating the gravel.
- Importation of clay-based subsoil: approximately 160 tonnes of clay-based compact subsoil will be supplied. All fill will be compacted in 300mm layers ready for shaping. Customers can provide their own subsoil to reduce the cost of the project. (It is important to ensure that any spoil imported to the site does not contain old tree roots, rubbish, metal or glass. The best material is clay-based or any subsoil taken from excavations of roads, building sites, footings, etc.)
- Track construction: the track will be shaped from the compacted mounds and will consist of a start hill and a combination of various obstacles (jumps) and berms. The track will be built above ground level to assist with drainage.
- Track surfacing: when shaped, the track will be dressed with a layer of 4mm-to-dust carboniferous limestone. It will be spread over the track surface and compacted to a depth of 75mm.
- Landscaping: grass seed will be scattered on the sides of the jumps and the back of the berms.
- Signage: an information sign will be supplied and installed.
- RoSPA report: after completion of the BMX track a full post-installation report will be carried out by a qualified inspector from RoSPA (The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents).
