             AWARD OF NEW INFRASTRUCTURE PROJECTS TOTALLING £42M



Morgan Sindall  Group  plc, the  construction  and regeneration  group,  today 
announces that its construction  and infrastructure division, Morgan  Sindall, 
has been appointed to deliver two new infrastructure projects in the rail  and 
water sectors.

Network Rail  has  awarded  Morgan  Sindall the  £20m  North  Doncaster  Chord 
project. This project  comprises the construction  of a new  3.2km twin  track 
railway and a six  span viaduct to  add extra capacity  and remove a  critical 
bottleneck from the East Coast Main Line (ECML).

The proposed development will include the construction of a permanent  highway 
overbridge over the ECML and associated track and signalling connections.  The 
works also involve replacing an existing level crossing with a highway  bridge 
which will reduce the height of the new railway link, or 'chord', and  provide 
road users with a safer crossing of the ECML.

The scheme will be delivered by  Network Rail, Morgan Sindall and URS  working 
in a new alliancing culture which will harness efficiencies and mitigate risk.

Separately, Morgan Sindall,  in a joint  venture with engineering  consultants 
Grontmij, has been awarded a circa £22m project with Yorkshire Water  Services 
to improve  Bridlington's bathing  water quality.  This project  includes  the 
construction of two  new combined  sewer overflow  chambers and  an 800  metre 
long, two metre diameter, storm water  tunnel. In addition, a new storm  water 
pumping station  will  be  constructed and  the  existing  headworks  building 
extended and  its pumps  upgraded. The  Morgan Sindall/Grontmij  team will  be 
working at four separate sites across Bridlington.

John Morgan, Chief  Executive of Morgan  Sindall Group commented:  "We have  a 
strong track record in the growth infrastructure sectors of rail and water and
we look  forward  to  working  in close  partnership  with  Network  Rail  and 
Yorkshire Water Services to deliver  these important projects. We are  focused 
on schemes which bring about improvements  to environments and services and  I 
am delighted that these projects will improve infrastructure for residents and
visitors to  Bridlington  and for  the  thousands of  passengers  and  freight 
services that rely on the East Coast Main Line."
