COUNCIL chiefs have revealed work has started on new cycle track in Evesham’s Charity Brook Park.

Wychavon District Council has  is investing £37,500 in creating the Pump Track, which will allow novice riders of any age build confidence and skills on a bike away from traffic.

Experienced cyclists can also use it to enhance their skills without putting others at risk.

The unique design and tarmac surface mean it will also be appropriate for skateboards and mini wheels.

Clark & Kent Contractors Ltd is carrying out the work which is expected to take six weeks to complete.

The track replaces the previous one, which had been in place for 10 years, but had to be closed in November 2018 on safety grounds as it had become rotten.

A public consultation revealed there was strong feedback from users for replacing the track.

Coun Emma Stokes, Executive Board member for Environment and Street Scene said: “This will be a fantastic facility that has been designed so it can be enjoyed a wide range of users, not just bike riders.”
