A22 Uckfield By-Pass

Uckfield, East Sussex

Back to Projects

Client: Welbeck Land

Project: New roundabout and lay-by directly onto the A22 Uckfield Bypass.

Cost: £5M

RIBA Project Stages: 0 - 7

The construction of a new roundabout feeding directly onto the A22 Uckfield Bypass, between the Little Horsted and Copwood roundabouts, a section of single carriageway to a second, an on-site roundabout and a new vehicle lay-by on the North Bound A22 Uckfield Bypass.

The opportunity

Planning permission was granted for a residential-led, mixed-use development, a primary school, retail, community, health & leisure facilities and employment use. As part of the planning permission a new roundabout and lay-by had to be constructed to accommodate the increased traffic generated.

The challenge

The A22 is one of the busiest arterial roads in the southeast of England. Total Project Integration managed the project, from concept design to completion. We worked closely with the Local Highways’ Authority and the client’s legal team to enter into the required Section 38/278 agreements. We coordinated the traffic management measures to be implemented throughout the duration of the works, managed service alterations to the site including a gas main diversion, and the installation of new power supplies. We also obtained a Natural England Licence relating to Dormouse mitigation measures. The sloping site, with challenging geo-technical ground conditions, including relic shear surfaces, needed to be closely managed throughout the design and construction process. Over 100,000m3 of material was excavated and re-incorporated into the works, with no material leaving site, a strategy agreed with the local planning authority and one which provided a large value engineering benefit to the client.

The outcome

The new roundabout and lay-by are complete, opening up this site and allowing the next development phases to progress.
