MURPHY GROUP has completed work to two bridges on the Midland main line, providing clearances in preparation for future wiring of the route.

The Syston Road bridge at Cossington was completed on 11 March, four weeks ahead of schedule, while the Station Road bridge in Loughborough was finished a week early on 26 March. Murphy says teams at both sites had to contend with unmapped private utility works as well as challenging weather conditions, including Storm Doris.
