I would like the local community to become aware of the current issue at the Chelmer Recreational Reserve BMX Facility. There is only one very small dirt track for use by all ages and skill abilities. This is a safety issue for younger riders because the current very small dirt track can get congested on busy days.

Better facilities and a second track for advanced users is required leaving the current small track for younger users. This second track would have larger drops, jumps and maybe even some wooden features. There is quite a lot of space available for this. Creating a second track will ensure safety for younger riders and a new more advanced track will put our suburb in line with Ashgrove, Ferny Grove and Riverhills that have BMX jumps. These are all a long and dangerous bike ride away, the closest is still a 30 minute drive on 60km/hr roads.
