Jackson to build £7M Suffolk relief road


Ipswich-based civil engineering firm Jackson has won the contract to build the £7M Beccles Southern Relief Road for Suffolk County Council.

The road will link the A145 London Road to Ellough to the south east of the town. Together with the B1127 Copland Way, it will form a southern and eastern bypass of Beccles.

Of the funding, £5M is from the New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) and £2M from Suffolk County Council. The contract is with the Eastern Highways Alliance.

Jackson’s technical director Jim Chaplin said: “We’re delighted to have been selected by Suffolk County Council to build this much needed relief road. Jackson works on civil engineering projects across the country, but it’s always great to win work on our home turf and build things which will have such a positive impact on our local communities.”

Construction will start in September and the road is expected to take 18 months to build.
