GRAHAM Contracted to Work on Stockport Link Road
GRAHAM has been appointed by Stockport Council through the Highways England CDF Lot 2 Framework in order to carry out the design and construction work for a new Travis Bow Link Road. This new road, when completed will create a vital linking road between the A6 and the M60 in Stockport town centre.
GRAHAM’s civil engineering team has experience of working on a range of prestigious and high profile jobs in the UK and Ireland. This past portfolio of work includes the Tennison Road Bridge Replacement for Network Rail as well as the A138 Chelmer Viaduct that was completed for Highways England.
The plan for the linking road was developed through a partnership between Stockport Council and Transport for Greater Manchester. The funding for this project has been secured by the Greater Manchester Combined Authority and as a part of the Growth Deal funding. GRAHAM is a highly regarded civil engineering and construction firm and will be taking part in this challenging civil engineering project that will connect with the iconic railway viaduct through the use of a disused railway tunnel to the A6, a part of Greater Manchester’s Key Route Network.
On top of this engineering and construction work, the contract will also see GRAHAM carrying out improvement works on the A6 Wellington Road North, the A5145 Travis Brow and George’s Road, which is adjacent. It is predicted that the work will be completed in August 2018. GRAHAM is experienced in completing a range of high-quality civil engineering projects. This new contract will benefit millions of people who will be able to use the new link road once work is completed. It is vital that these road improvements are carried out in order to continue the work to improve the transport access for thousands of motorists throughout Stockport town centre.
