Network Rail awards J Murphy & Sons $113.4mn main works contract

Enabling works have already begun on the project, with the project due for completion in 2025

A US $113.4mn contract has been awarded to J Murphy & Sons. Network Rail awarded the main works contract to build the new Cambridge South railway station in Cambridge, UK. Completion of the project is said to be planned for 2025.

According to a report, J Murphy & Sons is the principal civils contractor, working with the South Rail Systems Alliance (Colas Rail UK, AECOM and Network Rail) as principal track contractor.

The firm’s scope of work includes the remodelling of the existing track layout, installation of two additional track loops to accommodate a four-platform station, modifying existing signalling equipment, closing two private level crossings, and providing alternative access.

Enabling works have already begun on the project, including the installation of overhead line masts and front-walls of the platforms at the worksite compound.

“Murphy has made significant progress over recent months completing the enabling works, commenced installation of all four platforms, station building piling and undertaken all groundworks to facilitate the track being realigned during a blockade in December 2023. We have forged a strong working relationship with Network Rail and our other delivery partners, SRSA and Alstom on this major infrastructure project and look forward to completing this station for the people of Cambridge,” stated J Murphy & Sons’ Project Director Joe Kennedy.

In September, J Murphy & Sons was awarded a $150.4mn contract to build Chelmsford’s Beaulieu Park station for Essex and Chelmsford councils.
