Congleton Link Road – Notice of ground improvement works

15 May 2020
For the attention of the owner/occupier

Dear Neighbour,

Congleton Link Road – Notice of ground improvement works

As the Principal Contractor working with Cheshire East Council on the Congleton Link Road project, we
would like to inform you we will be undertaking critical ground improvement works to enable the
construction of the new mainline between Manchester Road and Macclesfield Road.
Part of these works involves a specialist machine carrying out a process called Rapid Compaction to a
section of the site. This involves taking the ground from its current state to a compacted platform ready
for future construction works to take place. The works have been flagged as a high noise level activity
which means some disturbance is unavoidable.
Important information about rapid compaction works
To minimise the effect of noise on our neighbours we have condensed the programme for the Rapid
Compaction element of the works. The works will take place from Thursday 28 May until Friday 5
June. Please note the works are subject to weather conditions and any changes in Government Covid-19
restrictions.

Covid-19 Safe working practice
Throughout this Covid-19 pandemic, we have taken practical steps, and implemented robust measures,
to ensure the welfare of our employees, sub-contractors, partners and the public.
In line with government, public health, and industry guidance, we have reviewed the working operations
across our sites including the Congleton Link Road project. Our sites are rigorously adhering to social
distancing regulations, and daily briefings are being conducted to highlight and reinforce, safe working
procedures.
We would like to thank you for your patience while we deliver this infrastructure programme.
We will continue to communicate and engage with you during the works to ensure that any inconvenience
is kept to a minimum.
