Infrastructure investments signal more Norfolk jobs

In recent weeks, two significant Norfolk infrastructure projects have reached important milestones, bringing good news for the local economy and Norfolk jobs. The 100m+ Elveden bypass scheme entered its final stages when a section of the new carriageway was opened to traffic at the end of April. The scheme, which is due to be completed by the end of 2014, is forecast to return twenty times the initial road building cost in benefits to the local economy.

The section of single carriageway from Barton Mills to Thetford has long been a thorn in the side of businesses in Norfolk and Suffolk, with traffic delays through the Elveden traffic lights directly impacting upon productivity so its great news to see the new road entering its final stages, explained Norwich-based recruitment specialist, Sam Holt of Big Sky Additions. As well as increasing productivity and profitability for existing businesses, its hoped that the new road will also catch the eye of outside investors, eager to create jobs in an area that is clearly thriving.

As the primary road link between London and Norwich, reduced journey times to the capital will also attract more tourists and residents to the East Coast: Reducing the perceived isolation of the area will make it a more appealing place to live which should have a positive effect on the talent pool of candidates in Norfolk and Suffolk, explained Sam, who specializes in recruiting for accountancy jobs in Norfolk and Suffolk.

In a second significant infrastructure development, work began earlier this month on the new Postwick hub on the A47 Southern Bypass to the East of Norwich.

As well as releasing land for 1,600 homes, Norfolk County Council says the project will unlock up to 80m of private investment and the potential for 5,000 Norfolk jobs.

As work began on the 19m upgrade, Andrew Proctor1, leader of Broadland District Council said: We are trying to grow the economy and we need to create jobs and housing, he added. This is everything we need to make a thriving community.

The new junction will ease congestion to the East of Norwich, not least by improving access to the expanding Broadland Business Park2 which is currently home to 4000 jobs.

The scheme is also widely regarded as the first link to the proposed Norwich Northern Distributor Route (NDR).
