Jackson completes further infrastructure works at Suffolk Park, Bury St. Edmunds

Jackson has recently completed further infrastructure works at Suffolk Park on the A14 corridor near Bury St Edmunds on behalf of Jaynic.

In 2018, Jackson constructed a 720 metre link road, cycle path and footway for the new 116 acre business park which has provided access to business units up to 750,000ft2 in size.

The team returned in April 2019 to construct a new 150 metre road to enable access into the new ambulance maintenance depot and installed 180 metres of stub road to enable further development of the park.

Throughout construction, Jackson used local suppliers to help deliver the project efficiently and to programme. Through effective planning and local stakeholder engagement, the team were able to re-surface and bring both Lady Miriam Way and Kempson Way up to adoptable Suffolk County Council standards, without working night shifts or causing major disruption to businesses adjacent to the working area.

The development will create hundreds of new jobs in mid-Suffolk as the site is strategically placed along the A14 corridor to give excellent access between the Midlands and the Port of Felixstowe, as well as being within easy reach of further key trunk roads such as the A12, A11, A1(M) and M11.

Jaynic's Construction Director, Jason Newman said: "After completing the initial infrastructure contract, Jackson where appointed to carry out the second phase to further expand our road network at Suffolk Park. Works were completed to a high standard within the agreed programme and we look forward to continuing our relationship with Jacksons on our upcoming schemes."

Jackson’s Eastern Regional Engineer, Josh Finbow said: “It has been another high quality scheme that Jackson has delivered for Jaynic. Repeat business is key to our success as a company, and this project has demonstrated that we have continued to forge good links with not only our client but the local authority [Suffolk County Council] and numerous stakeholders. We look forward to working with Jaynic again in the very near future.”
