BMX Pump Track - Jerry Bailey Oval, Shoalhaven Heads

In 2018, Shoalhaven City Council received a proposal from the Shoalhaven Heads Community Forum to construct a BMX pump track in Jerry Bailey Oval at Shoalhaven Heads.

Council conducted community engagement to assess the level of broad community support for the proposal. The results of the engagement showed there was a majority in support of the pump track being constructed.

The Pump Track has since been constructed and was opened on 16 June 2019.

The Forum is now proposing to seal the track and Council has resolved to give in-principle approval to the sealing, subject to the outcome of the community consultation process. Have your say on this matter via a survey, open from 4 July to 4 August 2019.

What is a Pump Track?

A pump track is a type of off-road terrain for cycle sports, consisting of a circuit of banked turns and humps. The proposed BMX pump track includes the importation of clean fill to create mounds and turns.

  • SURVEY - Sealing of the Shoalhaven Heads Pump Track

    The BMX Pump Track on Jerry Bailey Oval, Shoalhaven Heads is a community-led project by a sub-group of the Shoalhaven Heads Community Forum. To date the group has delivered an unsealed Pump Track to the site. A long-term goal of the Community Forum is to have the track sealed, to reduce the need for maintenance and increase the number of users and variety of uses for the track (ie skateboarding, scootering, etc).

    At Council’s Ordinary Meeting on 28 May 2019, Council resolved to give in-principle approval to seal the Pump Track subject to the outcome of the community consultation

    At Council’s Ordinary Meeting on 28 May 2019, Council resolved to give in-principle approval to seal the Pump Track subject to the outcome of the community consultation process.

    It is proposed that the Pump Track will be sealed with asphalt, being a mixture of aggregate and bituminous binder. The asphalt will be delivered to the site and light machinery will be used to place it on the track. Manual labour and compactor plates will then be used to level and smooth the final surface. It is anticipated that the works will take approximately 10 days, weather permitting.

    Council undertook community consultation in late 2018 regarding the proposal for an unsealed track. Further community consultation must now be undertaken to determine the level of support and need for the sealing of the track and to provide community members with the opportunity to give feedback. In conjunction with this consultation, Council will complete Native Title Assessments and a Review of Environmental Factors.
