A2300 Improvement Scheme
is officially opened
Working on behalf of West Sussex County Council, Jackson is principal contractor on the project. It involved a design and build upgrade of the existing single carriageway A2300 to a dual carriageway, linking the town of Burgess Hill to the A23/M23.
The scheme has also provided opportunities for people to make sustainable travel choices, with the provision of shared use pedestrian-cycle paths on either side of the new road.
The County Council’s Cabinet Member for Highways and Transport, Joy Dennis, cut the ribbon on the £23m improved road link.
She said: “These multi-million-pound improvements will lead to significant benefits for the area in supporting the provision of new jobs, homes and workspace.”

Guests at the opening ceremony included members of the Jackson team. Attendees were given an e-bike demonstration, courtesy of the County Council’s Bikeability team, and a tour of the new road and other improvements on a bus.
Jackson’s Contracts Director, Rupert Chitty said: “On behalf of Jackson Civil Engineering I’d like to say what a huge pleasure it has been in delivering the A2300 improvement scheme on behalf of West Sussex.”
