Construction News Image
Construction firm GRAHAM's Congleton Link Road project has received two prestigious highways industry awards.

The £90 million link road project team received the 'large project of the year' accolade at both the Institute of Highways Engineers' (Mercia Branch) and the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation 2022 awards ceremonies.

GRAHAM's project team, working in collaboration with Cheshire East Council and contractor Ringway Jacobs' staff, delivered the 5.5km Wolstenholme Elmy Way against a backdrop of severe challenges of exceptional wet weather and disruption due to the Covid pandemic.

The latest awards follow a Civil Engineering Contractors' North West award last October, for 'social value', which recognised exceptional partnership work delivering local community initiatives.

Alastair Lewis, Contracts Director for GRAHAM, said: "These latest awards are fantastic and well-deserved recognition for the whole team for their hard work and dedication to delivering a first-class project.

"Despite the challenge created by the Covid pandemic, we were able to deliver a complex scheme within budget – and as close to the original schedule as possible –while also helping support many local community projects in the local area."
