Blair Reserve Bike Track Upgrade

Feedback on the Blair Reserve Bike Track is now closed. Stay tuned for updates.

The Blair Reserve bike track needs an upgrade and your views will help make sure the upgraded bike track is great.

To get started Council has already spoken to a number of groups such as the Hastings Valley BMX Club, Hastings Valley Mountain Bike Rider Club, members of the local biking community and one of our professional BMX riders.

One of the ideas talked about was the need for children to be able to learn to bike ride in a safe environment and also learn skills for BMX and mountain bike recreational riding.

An early design has been created based on this feedback and the positive feedback from other bike opportunities developed at Bellangry Park on Lake Road and improvements at Wayne Richards Park.

Based on what we have heard already, an idea of how the bike track could look has been developed.

Have a look at the plan Blair Street Bike Track Upgrade.

All feedback will be reviewed and passed on to a specialist company who will be contracted to finalise the design and construct the final bike track.

    We have consulted with a variety of users including bike groups and local residents. We have had a range of feedback and have re-evaluated the plans based on these comments. Changes include an asphalt children’s bike track near the playground and some upgrades of the existing track to include more variety and some hardening of surfaces with the application of a dust suppressant.

    A number of residents commented on the need to repair the road and install kerb and guttering. All Council works within the road reserve are selected in accordance with Councils risk rating procedures governed by advice provided by Councils insurer and undertaken within the limits of funding and resources. The request for new kerb and gutter rates as a low risk and therefore works will not be scheduled at this point in time. There is also a clear direction from the State Government for Councils to focus on maintaining existing road assets rather than upgrading or constructing new infrastructure.

    We have received some valuable feedback from the community regarding the Blair Reserve bike track upgrade with a number of the common themes listed below.

    An early design has been created by a specialist bike track company and incorporates a number of changes based on feedback from the community;

    - Sealing the Learner bike loop with asphalt to remove dust issue and locate it within the existing playground area to reduce the visual impact on the reserve

    (proposed length and design similar to the Learner loop located at Bellangry Park on Lake Road)

    - Reduction of Skills Trail length and use of soil stabiliser to minimise dust

    - Use of soil stabiliser on the existing bike track to reduce dust

    The upgrade is an opportunity to extend the play value of the existing playground, improve usability of the existing bike track and offer an opportunity for primary and secondary aged children to be able to learn to bike ride in a safe environment.
