Crewe Green Link Road contract goes to Morgan Sindall

Morgan Sindall has won a £19m contract with Cheshire East Council to build the 1.1 kilometre dual-carriageway link road, which is set to open up the large Basford greenfield development sites.

The dual-carriageway will run between the existing roundabout on the northern spur off the A500 Hough-Shavington bypass up to the A5020 Weston Gate roundabout.

When complete in November 2015, the project will create an alternative bypass for Crewe, reducing traffic passing through the town and providing easier access to the A500 and M6.

The scheme involves the construction of a new rail underbridge to enable the road to run under the Crewe to Derby railway line.
