Consultation has opened on Falkirk Council’s website for feedback on the proposed ‘pump track’ to be built later this year.

The area, adjacent to the Grangemouth park’s play area, will be converted into a circuit of bumps and rolls for cyclists to ride using their own momentum thanks to £50k from sportScotland and the local authority and forms part of the lottery-funded re-generation of Zetland.

Partners in the project include Friends of Zetland Park, Grangemouth and Carrongrange High Schools, Falkirk Junior Bike Club, Grangemouth Triathlon Club, Al Massar and Central Scotland Regional Equality Council. Zetland Park Bike Library nearby will also lend mountain bikes for free.

Initial ideas have been drafted and pedal enthusiasts – and skateboarders, scooter-goers and roller skaters too – can now have a say.

Work is expected to begin later this year and be ready in 2021.

The drafts, and survey can be accessed here.
