A NEW pump track is planned for Madora Bay.

A pump track is a type of path that allows bike or scooter riders to rock back and forwards as they move over small humps to keep moving.

The City of Mandurah is seeking community feedback on the best location.

Madora Bay has been identified as the location to install a pump track at one of three parklands in the area: Coote Reserve on Challenger Road, Mclennan Park on Madora Beach Road or Lord Hobart Drive on Lord Hobart Drive.

The public consultation period is now open and will run for four weeks until Wednesday, March 6 at 5pm, to give the community and stakeholders a chance to provide feedback to the City.

Three community consultation sessions have been scheduled for:

Thursday, February 21 – 4.30pm to 7pm at Lakelands Shopping Centre

Saturday, February 23 – 10.30am to 2.30pm at Lakelands Shopping Centre

Wednesday, February 27 – 5.30pm to 6.30pm at Madora Bay Hall

City of Mandurah Mayor Rhys Williams said the City is committed to creating an active and vibrant place to live and visit, by providing a choice of leisure activities that contribute to the health and wellbeing of the community.

“I encourage our local community to have their say on where they would like to see a pump track built,” he said.

The Madora Bay pump track is part of the Local Projects Local Jobs funding grant through the State Government’s Royalties for Regions program. Some other projects delivered as part of the funding include the Watersun Reserve Playground upgrade, Orion Road Playground, Bortolo Reserve Sports floodlighting upgrade, Mandurah Southern Districts fire equipment upgrade and the installation of CCTV infrastructure.
