Morgan Sindall in £42m infrastructure contracts boost

Morgan Sindall has won two new infrastructure projects worth £42m including the £20m North Doncaster Chord project.

Network Rail has awarded the North Doncaster Chord project which comprises the construction of a new 3.2km twin-track railway and a six-span viaduct to add extra capacity and remove a critical bottleneck from the East Coast Main Line.

The proposed development will include the construction of a permanent highway overbridge over the ECML and associated track and signalling connections.

The works also involve replacing an existing level crossing with a highway bridge which will reduce the height of the new railway link, or ‘chord’, and provide road users with a safer crossing of the ECML.

The scheme will be delivered by Network Rail, Morgan Sindall and URS working in a new alliancing culture which will harness efficiencies and mitigate risk.

Separately, Morgan Sindall, in a joint venture with engineering consultants Grontmij, has been awarded a deal worth around £22m project with Yorkshire Water Services to improve Bridlington’s bathing water quality.

The scheme includes the construction of two new combined sewer overflow chambers and an 800 metre long, two metre diameter, storm water tunnel.

In addition, a new storm water pumping station will be constructed and the existing headworks building extended and its pumps upgraded. The Morgan Sindall/Grontmij team will be working at four separate sites across Bridlington.

Morgan Sindall Group chief executive John Morgan said: “We are focused on schemes which bring about improvements to environments and services and I am delighted that these projects will improve infrastructure for residents and visitors to Bridlington and for the thousands of passengers and freight services that rely on the East Coast Main Line.”
