D2 Rail supports J. Murphy and Sons with utility diversions on CP6 Renewals Framework

D2 Rail has been engaged to support leading engineering and construction company Murphy across a range of schemes, on their CP6 renewals frameworks in the Anglia, Southeast and Wessex regions.

Specialist delivery partner D2 Rail is currently providing management and coordination support for the utility works across several schemes as part of the CP6 structures programme.

This involves ensuring that designs, estimates, and procurement are delivered in line with each project’s schedule.

D2’s expert team will undertake utility impact assessments, advise on scope of works and survey requirements, and assist in developing the programme, risk, and opportunity identification. The team will also establish relationships with the utility companies affected by the schemes.

Utility diversions are considered high risk, in terms of both project costs and programme delivery delays. They can also cause safety issues, disruption, and inconvenience to the public. D2 will help to manage, reduce, and even eliminate these risks.

John Johnson, operations director for rail at D2, commented: “We’re delighted to be working with J. Murphy and Sons, which selected D2 because of our experience of delivering utility diversions for major projects. This experience, coupled with our extensive knowledge of the utility industry, meant that we were ideally positioned to provide support with the CP6 framework.”

D2 Rail’s utilities team have worked on a range of challenging projects, including the Northern Hub Programme and Transpennine Route Upgrade. Its latest project involves working on multiple schemes and across different regions, as well as building relationships with different project teams and utility companies. Each scheme is at a different stage in its lifecycle, and challenges vary from one to another.

John Walker, senior project manager at J. Murphy and Sons, commented: “D2 rail have assisted us greatly with the planning and management of the Utility diversions at Nazeing New Road and in planning the significant utility interface for Year 5 structures replacements”.
