The winners were announced at a ceremony held at the Hilton Blackpool Hotel and was presented by ICE President Tim Broyd. The judges highlighted Tony Gee’s excellent collaboration between Murphy and Shay Murtagh.
Working alongside Network Rail, J. Murphy & Sons and Shay Murtagh, Tony Gee completed the permanent and temporary works design for a new structure to replace the existing rail overbridge. Tony Gee also provided site supervision throughout the construction phase.
Part of the design incorporated a weathering steel composite solution, which allowed the beams to be lifted in place which reduced the overall construction programme and minimised future maintenance. The design also minimised disruption to the local community and rail users during construction.
Associate Director Lee Barraclough comments: “This recognition of Carters Bridge is the reward for the effort that Tony Gee has taken to develop productive working relationships with Murphy and suppliers in the last four years.”
