Lib Dems demand answers on BMX track at Eston

Liberal Democrats in the Borough of Redcar and Cleveland are asking when the problems with the BMX track at Eston will be dealt with.

The track has cost £90,000 to build but has had to be repaired four times already due to subsidence.

The Director of Biketrack (specialist track designers) has said that parts of the course are so dangerous they need demolishing altogether.

Liberal Democrat Leisure Spokesman, Cllr Josh Mason (pictured), questioned the Council’s Cabinet Member for Culture, Leisure & Tourism.
Cllr Mason said:
“A BMX track is a great facility for young people.
“But I am very concerned it cannot be used due to design problems.
“Local people have a right to know why the Council has handled this so badly, and why they turned down free expert advice from specialist architects.
“This is another example of the Labour Council not getting the basics right, and wasting public money in the process."
