Congleton Link Road

Appointed Engineers: Graham

Construction work is now under way, with scheduled completion set for late 2020. Core elements of the project will involve cutting the road 8m deep into mudstone in a 25m high escarpment before traversing the River Dane with an 85m long bridge and landing on a 12m high embankment founded on piled alluvium. Two further road bridge crossings and two underpasses will be constructed while 3.5km of realigned and new local roads represent an additional portion of the works programme, which will demand landscaping and environmental mitigation to accommodate great crested newts, bats and ancient woodland.
