Federal Member for Page Kevin Hogan today announced a $15,000 grant to the Clarence Valley BMX Club to upgrade its track and improve safety.
“This is a great win for the club and the Clarence community,” he said.
“The upgrade will make the track safer for riders and require less maintenance by volunteers, allowing them to focus more on assisting the riders and growing the sport in the Clarence.”
The grant will allow the club to upgrade the existing track, replacing the dirt berm (banked corner) with asphalt that require little to no maintenance and making it much safer for riders.
About 50 tonnes of asphalt will be used in the upgrade, requiring a specialist contractor to undertake the work.
The track is open to the public on non-race days and is widely used by the general community.
