The Rt Hon Patrick McLoughlin MP, Secretary of State for Transport, visited the £10m A164 Humber Bridge to Beverley Route Improvement Scheme this week to mark its completion. Constructed by Jackson, this project was one of 35 transport schemes approved by the government back in 2011, in a bid to boost the ailing economy, and provide a much needed cash-injection into the construction industry.
Heroes from Region 2 battled through six inches of heavy snowfall and sub-zero temperatures on the coldest weekend in February 2012 to install two footbridges over a railway and the River Rother in Sheffield.
The operation included a full rail closure, so the team had to complete the job on time in order to reopen the railway on Monday morning. The bridges formed part of a pedestrian footpath and cyclepath constructed for Sheffield City Council. The contract was worth £1.1m.
The work attracted a small crowd of onlookers on Sunday morning and the professionalism of the guys on site led one woman to call Head Office the next morning to congratulate Jackson on doing such a wonderful job! Well done to all the guys involved.
Pupils from Stanley Drapkin School in Steeple Bumpstead were given an introduction to Civil Engineering yesterday when they were visited by Engineers from Jackson along with The Environment Agency and the construction industry mascot Ivor Goodsite.
Jackson is currently working to build new flood defences in Steeple Bumpstead for the Environment Agency, and representatives from both parties visited the school along with Ivor Goodsite to give an assembly to 200 pupils. The assembly involved an introduction to the flood defence project, and also raised pupils awareness to the dangers of playing on or near construction sites.
Location: Region 3 (Lower Tame Site)

Jackson recently started work to improve the A19/A63 junction at Barlby in North Yorkshire. The junction is currently a staggered cross-road that has become an accident black-spot, with hazardous right hand turns. The A19 carries over 33,000 vehicles along this stretch each day, and therefore North Yorkshire Council have enlisted Jackson to reconfigure the junction and construct a roundabout, to make the junction safer, and to reduce traffic queues.
Jackson has won the Environment Agency's Efficiency Award for the work they did on the Rye Harbour Western Training Wall Project, a £9m scheme to re-build the harbour wall in Rye, East Sussex. Delivered 11% under the approved budget, through collaboration and early engagement with the supply chain, the team managed to save over £970k on the project.

Windsor Castle will soon be supplied with green energy after the second of two hydropower turbines was installed by Jackson at Romney Weir today. The site team did a fantastic job, craning in the 20 tonne turbine without a hitch, whilst being watched by the world's media!
