Rising to the challenge

WINNERS OF the East Anglian Merit Award were saluted by Sir Alan Cockshaw on his recent presidential visit.

The £4.75M Turner Rise Railway bridge in Colchester was praised for improving the local road network in Colchester and rail connections to London and East Anglia.

Cockshaw said: 'The Institution felt the Turner Rise contract truly reflected all the attributes

of a successful civil engineering project - teamwork, innovative design and physical achievement.

Jackson Civil Engineering installed the replacement bridge during Christmas 1996 for Railtrack as part of a design and construct package. Aspen Burrow Cocker and Robert West were the consulting engineers.
