Jackson Civil Engineering has launched a new Highways Division to broaden its offering to the highway’s sector.
Over the past 20 years Jackson has built up substantial experience in delivering works on the strategic network for Highways England, initially through the South East Framework, MAC’S and ASC’s and more recently the past 10 years as a tier 1 supplier on the Connect Plus M25 Framework, where delivering and satisfying the strategic outcomes is a real challenge. Now, Jackson is looking to expand its highways coverage across the rest of the Strategic Road Network.
With over 30 years’ experience, Jackson’s existing M25 Framework Director, Paul Watson, has been appointed Highways Director to lead the new division. He said: “Through our recent highways experience we’ve laid the foundations of a highly skilled team to go and deliver work across the rest of the Strategic Road Network. Highways England’s Delivery Plan details the need, and their expectation for SME’s like Jackson to work in a more collaborative and integrated way, which is a really great fit for our business, and our people.”
Jackson’s Managing Director Brian Crofton said: “As a company, Jackson began its journey as Roadworks 1952 Ltd, so today it gives me great pride to be able to establish a new highways division within the business. With Paul Watson heading up the division, I know we will continue to grow our influence in this sector and become a key supply partner to Highways England delivering against their values and targets.
