What is a pump track?
A pump track is a continuous loop track with
banked turns and mounds that you ride without pedalling, the ‘pumping’ motion
is used to maintain speed. Pump tracks can also be ridden by skateboarders, in-line skaters and scooters. As it is only a proposal designs of the pump track have not been completed. There are photos of example pump tracks in the Photo Gallery.

Why is Council seeking public feedback?
Will the proposed project include additional parking and toilet facilities?
Council recently consulted with the local residents about the proposal for lights on the soccer fields at Bagot Park. Improving the car parking was a key priority for the local residents. A design has been completed for the upgrade of the existing car park, this will be considered by Council as part of the 2019/20 budget process. There are not any plans for additional parking at this stage.
There are no plans for additional toilets. There is an existing toilet block next to the Velodrome.
Does Council have a view on whether this project should proceed?
Council is focussed on supporting any project that aims to activite and reinvigorate the City of Darwin. However we are very mindful of our role; supporting and investing in projects that the people of Darwin need and want, which is why we are asking the community for their feedback on the proposal.
Is there funds for the proposed Velodrome Precinct elements?
How will the local residents be impacted?
