Morgan Sindall has won an £8 million deal to refurbish Liverpool’s underground station platforms.
The programme of improvement works taking place on platforms at James Street, Lime Street and Central Stations will involve replacing wall claddings to tunnels, escalators and passageways as well as retiling the floors and platforms.
Passenger access at Central Station will also be improved with the replacement of three escalators.
Morgan Sindall infrastructure managing director Jag Paddam said: “We are delighted to have been awarded this project and look forward to applying our diverse experience gained on previous rail projects to ensure a successful end result.”
“Our team is accustomed to working in live environments. On this project, whilst a number of the stations themselves will be closed, we will be undertaking a series of night time working schedules so that trains can continue to pass through and thus minimise disruption to the travelling public.”
Construction starts in April and the project is due for completion by August 2013.
