First, the group’s Environment business will be installing a new £33 million pipeline in South London, in Thames Water’s Riverside Flow Monitoring Zone, to meet an anticipated increase in demand. 

Second, the Environment business has been appointed to a £31 million contract to install a new 9km clean water pipeline connecting the Netley Water Treatment Works in the east of Guildford, Surrey, with the main reservoir network to the west. 

Finally, the Highways business has signed a £34 million contract to redevelop the A629 route into central Halifax, including pedestrianisation of key access areas and re-routing access to the town’s railway station while removing traffic from the centre. 

The contract wins follow the group publishing a strong trading update for the first six months of the current financial year. 

Galliford will announce its results for the half year on 6 March.  

Bill Hocking, chief executive of Galliford Try, said: “We are delighted to have been appointed to these three contracts which represent key markets within our Sustainable Growth Strategy. We look forward to working with Thames Water and Calderdale Council to provide their local communities with the high-quality public infrastructure that will serve them for years to come.”
