8:00am Tuesday 3rd September 2013 in News
A CONSTRUCTION company has been awarded the £27 million contract to build the new A500 link road.
Morgan Sindall has been awarded the project to design and construct a 1.1 km dual-carriageway link road near Crewe for Cheshire East Council.
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.
Morgan Sindall has been appointed on an early contractor involvement basis and will complete the work within an allocated £19 million contract. The overall scheme cost is £27 million.
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.
Gary Crisp, highways director at Morgan Sindall, says: “This is our first project with Cheshire East Council and we look forward to working together to realise this important scheme.”
