Scheme to electrify the Gospel Oak to Barking Route as part of the Railway Upgrade Plan, increasing peak hour capacity by 30 percent. Murphy delivered civil works for a 12-mile stretch of the London Overground rail network as part of the electrification of the line where we successfully delivered on programme with minimal disruption to the local community. All works were carried out safely with no major accidents during the 22 months.
Works were delivered on time to ensure the railway’s opening on 24 February, 2017 where we then carried out bonding works to facilitate the electrification, completed in May 2018. On GOBE we saved £4.5m through value engineering whilst minimising the impact on the community and risk to the programme.
