Cheshire East Borough Council has requested bids for a £25m contract to design and build a proposed 3km-long single carriageway, known as Poynton Relief Road in the UK.

The northern end of the planned 3km-long road will connect to a junction with the A6 to Manchester Airport Relief Road (A6MARR), currently under construction.

It will also pass under the A5149 Chester Road to the west of Poynton and continue south to cross the Woodford Aerodrome runway, ultimately connecting to the existing A523 London Road.

Poynton Relief Road forms part of the South East Manchester Multi-Modal Scheme, which also features a new road bridge, cycleway, footway, two additional accommodation bridges and balancing ponds for drainage.

“Cheshire East Council is developing the Poynton Relief Road project in collaboration with Stockport Council.”

The project also includes the upgrade of two off-site junctions at Adlington Cross Roads and Bonis Hall Lane.

Plans also include landscaping and environmental mitigation work for great crested newts, bats, and other environmental flora and fauna.

Cheshire East Council is developing the Poynton Relief Road project in collaboration with Stockport Council.

Interested companies can submit their bids up to 23 November. Shortlisted firms will be invited to tender on 14 January 2019.

Cheshire East Council recently selected civil engineering company Graham Construction to deliver the 5.5km Congleton Link Road scheme, connecting the A536 Macclesfield Road with the A534 Sandbach Road.

The council also awarded a £600m contract to Ringway Jacobs to provide highways services for up to 15 years.
