Chinese Presidential visit to site at Manchester University

As part of his visit to Manchester, the Chinese President, President Xi Jinping visited the “world leading” National Graphene Institute at the University of Manchester.

This is located across the road from Connell Brothers Ltd busy demolition site. During the President’s visit the works were suspended in the immediate area of the Graphene Institute which is located some 30 metres from the MECD development and quiet working was undertaken to the remainder of the site.

Connell Brothers site management team provided full co-operation with Greater Manchester Police to ensure there was no disruption to the visit and further ensured that an adequate area was provided adjacent to the site for spectators.
