Companies tendering to build the Bury St Edmunds Eastern Relief Road are being asked to price the options of building all 2.3km or just 600m at the western end.

Negotiations are going on with Rougham Estate to buy land for the relief road and an expansion of the Suffolk Business Park and St Edmundsbury Borough Council had threatened compulsory purchase.

Last week Suffolk County Council published an invitation to tender for the work.

Its outline of the complete route says: “The scheme consists of a single carriageway approximately 2.3 kilometres long with short connections to the existing network at the new junctions.

“It will generally be a greenfield site and cross existing roads. A 560m length of existing road will require reconstruction. There will be five new roundabouts and alterations to the slip roads that connect with the Highways England A14.”

The 600m would go from the roundabout next to Bury St Edmunds Audi’s showroom, on Lady Miriam Way, to a new roundabout and would serve a proposed new school. The complete road would continue to Battlies Green and go south to the A14’s junction 45.
