Balfour Beatty wins work with Network Rail and National Grid

The eastern region of Balfour Beatty Regional Civil Engineering, based in Wakefield, has been awarded £2.5m worth of new contracts, with customers including Network Rail and National Grid.

Its work for National Grid includes S278 access into a new Police Headquarters in Hull and to two Victorian-era rail tunnels near Sheffield.

Delivered by Network Rail, on behalf of the local authority, was the replacement of an overbridge in Sheffield, for which a 50-hour track possession will take place on Christmas and Boxing Day this year.

Additional works for Network Rail include underbridge reconstruction at Bessacarr and Tickhill in Doncaster.
