Northern Arc infrastructure progress

Northern Arc Link Roads mapHomes England has appointed Jackson Civil Engineering and John Sisk and Sons to build essential road infrastructure that will support the Northern Arc development in Burgess Hill. Work is already underway at both the Eastern and Western sides of the Northern Arc site to construct the new road network. 

One of the main benefits of Homes England managing the Northern Arc development in Burgess Hill is that they can ensure essential infrastructure is delivered alongside the new homes. The road and associated roundabouts to the west of the Northern Arc, together with improved pedestrian and cycle routes for sustainable travel, will help to ease traffic pressures and provide better public transport connections for residents.

Jackson Civil Engineering is building the Western Link road connecting the A2300 in the north to Jane Murray Way in the south, with new roundabouts built at the intersections with the existing highways. Construction of the northern half of the A2300 roundabout is scheduled to be completed later this month (May 2021) and this will be followed by the construction of the southern half of the roundabout and main carriageway.

John Sisk and Sons is working on the Eastern Bridge and Link Road which will join Freeks Lane to Isaacs lane, providing pedestrian and vehicle access to the eastern part of the Northern Arc site. Sisk have now finished the initial site clearance along Isaacs Lane and at the future bridge location, as well as ground investigation for underground services. Now that this is complete, the next step is to limit the environmental impact during construction by erecting fencing to protect tree trunks and branches from moving machinery, as well as protecting tree roots from excavation.

When will I get my jab?

You will probably be very keen to get your COVID-19 vaccination as soon as possible. 

The NHS is currently offering the COVID-19 vaccine to people most at risk from coronavirus.

It’s being given to:

  • people aged 32 and over
  • people who are at high risk from coronavirus (clinically extremely vulnerable)
  • people who are at moderate risk from coronavirus (clinically vulnerable)
  • people who live or work in care homes
  • eligible health and social care workers
  • unpaid carers

The order in which people will be offered the vaccine is based on advice from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI)

Plans are already being put in place for rolling out the vaccine to the next priority groups. If you are not in the groups described above, you will be contacted at a later date once you become eligible.

Find out more about when you’re likely to be invited, how you will book your appointment and where you can get your jab at When will I get my jab? | Sussex Health & Care Partnership (sussexhealthandcare.uk)
