Last Thursday gales threatened to halt progress on the Congleton Link Road.  Several roadside trees on Giantswood Lane simply keeled over and blocked the road during the high winds, following the torrential rain of the previous days. As a result, the vitally important bridge beams were temporarily halted.

Prompt action by Grahams engineers helped avoid a far more series road safety incident.  A group of workmen appeared rapidly, removed the fallen trees, and cleared the road.
