Lingwood awarded Fylde Coast security project

Land and Marine / Murphy's have appointed Lingwood Security Management to provide site security for the building work replacement of Harrowside Outfall in Blackpool located just south of Blackpool Pleasure beach.

The project will be delivered by Land and Marine Engineering Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of Murphy. The works are part of United Utilities' £100m investment to improve the sewer network along the Fylde Coast over the next five years.

Brian Sharp, United Utilities senior project manager for Harrowside, said: "This year, bathing waters will be judged for the first time against the new stringent European bathing water laws. All of Fylde's bathing waters passed the previous standards so we've come a long way in improving water quality but the stricter directive means we all need to do more.

"United Utilities is absolutely committed to playing its part and investing in the area to help further clean up the sea off the coast of Blackpool. We look forward to working with Murphy and Land & Marine to support us in delivering this significant contract." Speaking ahead of the works commencing, director Alan Lingwood, said: "We are proud to be involved in this major new development on the Fylde coastline. Our head office is located just along the coast beside Heysham Port, so we have a strong affinity with the coastline and its preservation. A project of this scale will have a positive impact on the environment for generations to come
