Our water sector has begun work on a water contract worth £1.3m.
Working for Thames Water's eightO alliance, Murphy is upgrading pressure valves across the water network and creating new pressure management areas. The works stretch from Merton to Hertfordshire, and from south-east London to Middlesex.
This is the 10 phase of works on what has been an ambitious and long-running leak prevention project. The water team at Murphy has successfully carried out six previous phases of this valve replacement project over a two-year period.
Stuart Rothery, director of water at Murphy, said: 'Murphy has been appointed to work on this project as a result of successfully delivering on previous phases of this valve replacement project. Our expert team of engineers will ensure the project runs smoothly, reducing leakage across the water network, meeting the highest standards.'
The works involve up to 12 teams of engineers and operatives working in parallel across 50 locations in the south-east.
Work is due to be completed in early 2017.
