Newmarket is fast establishing itself as an ideal regional headquarters location due to excellent communications via the A14 and A11/M11 to Cambridge, Stansted, East Coast Ports and London. Faster drive times to Norwich (45 minutes) and Thetford (20 minutes) have been enabled by the recent dualling of the A11 from Barton Mills to Norwich.
Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has established their new regional Cytology Unit for Cambridgeshire & Suffolk to Newmarket off Addenbrooke’s Hospital site in Cambridge and staff from West Suffolk Hospital, Bury St. Edmunds have located to Oaks Business Park too.
The new hourly Abellio Greater London train service between Cambridge & Ipswich has also facilitated companies wanting to relocate out of Cambridge & Bury St. Edmunds where traffic congestion has been one of the main reasons for choosing Newmarket as a location.
