Alf McAlpine tipped to take £8m bypass work

Contracts STAFFORDSHIRE

ALFRED McAlpine is tipped to nab an £8 million deal to build a long-awaited bypass in Staffordshire.

The firm is understood to be in talks with Staffordshire County Council over the A527 Biddulph inner bypass after seeing off opposition from Balfour Beatty, Birse and Wrekin.

The new 1.7 km-long single carriageway will bypass Biddulph, taking traffic away from the town centre on the busy stretch of road between Stoke and Congleton. Residents have been pressing for the scheme for more than 35 years.

Construction is due to begin in June, lasting 12 months.
