£2.4m platform improvement scheme at Liverpool Lime Street now complete

J. Murphy & Sons Limited has recently completed a series of new platform improvements at Liverpool Lime Street station. The £2.4m project involved resurfacing platforms 1-5 with new paving flags, tactile warning flags and platform edge copers to improve passenger safety and modernise the overall platform environment. The scheme also saw the reconstruction of the concourse linking the ends of platforms 1-6 together.

Driven by innovation and best practice, the Murphy project team deployed a number of value-adding solutions, including solar powered power pods to reduce the site’s carbon footprint and environmental impact. Mechanical mixers, hydraulic flag splitters and remote controlled breakers were also used and virtually eliminated hand arm vibration. A new system of pre-sealing paving stones was also deployed, saving considerable time over traditional drying and grouting methods.

Richard Smith, Murphy site agent, commented: “The project really showcased the collaborative spirit needed to deliver the new platforms safely, on time, within budget and all with minimal disruption to the travelling public. Network Rail and the train operating companies deserve a lot of credit and it’s great to see the platforms now looking safe and bright for passengers.
