The Conservative Administration are proud to say that the first part of the Bury St Edmunds Eastern Relief Road opened on Friday 11 November 2016
The 350 metre stretch of road, which is part of a £15million scheme championed by Suffolk Conservatives, jointly funded by the New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership, via its Growth Deal with Government, Suffolk County Council and St Edmundsbury Borough Council, will make possible the delivery of 500 new homes and provide access to the new Sybil Andrews Academy and Community Sports facility.
This new stretch of road will also open up one part of the Suffolk Business Park site – This Conservative pledged project will create thousands of jobs and millions of pounds for the local economy.
When completed, the road will run from Skyliner Way to junction 45 of the A14. The design of the road also incorporates a Sustainable Drainage System, which retains and purifies water locally, allowing it to filter into the ground in a way that imitates its natural path.
J Breheny Contractors were appointed by Suffolk County Council in February 2016, with construction beginning in March 2016. The road is on track to be completed by summer 2017.
