Alderley Edge bypass
7th February 2011 at 4:17PM
90 years and 52m in the making, with 12 miles of new dranage and 2 pumping stations, and, opened with more fuss and fanfare than a lord mayors parade, by no less a personage than George Osborne M.P, that was the Alderley bypass back in November, then, a couple of days of rain, one pumping station fails and the bypass gets closed, great job well done.
The thing that puzzles me is, why, 90 years ago did they feel the need for a bypass, was it because the little man, with the red flag, walking in front of the "motor car" lowered the tone of the heighbourhood, or, did they get fed up with shoveling horse dung after the mail coach had passed through, whatever the reason, I am not laughing, honest,well maybe just a chuckle or two.( Be careful what you wish for)

To be fair, we had 1 months worth of rain in 36 hours so I can't see how any planners can plan for that.

To guest, apart from opening the bypass I never said the Honourable member for Tatton had anything to do with the bypass.
To Adamski, three months rain in two days, and!, for 52m for a three mile stretch of road should by you a construction that should be able to withstand almost anything.
