Highways Magazine Excellence Awards 2013

Road Safety Officer Transport & Highways, Environment and Community Services – London Borough of Bromley
It boosted team morale and was an indication that the work we do is appreciated and respected. The award endorses our continued commitment to road safety education and casualty reduction.
Group Manager – Highway Maintenance Services East Riding of Yorkshire Council
We had quite a few messages of congratulation last year which highlighted the 'spread' of news of the award within the industry. It was great to be recognised nationally with the ‘IHE Team of the year’ award, especially against such high profile competition. The award has been appreciated by all involved improving morale and pride in the job.    
Area 12 Programme Delivery Manager – A-one+ Integrated Highway Services
The HMEAs are an amazing opportunity for some of our successful and emerging initiatives to receive critical peer review and recognition. It also provides a platform for us to share our good practice with the wider industry and listen to what good practice others have developed. This enables us collectively as an industry to continually improve the services we deliver. A-one+ were proud winners of the 2013 Site Safety Initiative of the Year award for our No Strikes IPV Education Initiative. The shortlisted entry allowed us to recognise the contribution of individuals in our own company when we invited them to represent the company at the awards ceremony. Since winning the award in October last year, we have seen elevated interest in the initiative and we have now engaged with ten major logistics companies across the UK to incorporate the IPV training into their formal driver CPC programmes. This will ultimately lead to safer workplaces for our road workers.
Director of Road Asset Management – Transport for London (TfL)
I am delighted to be guest speaker at the Highways Magazine Excellence Awards. This year marks 100 years of women working in transport, taking on roles traditionally held by men during the First World War. Women have continued to play a significant role in transport since then including the construction of Waterloo Bridge, opened in December 1945 where 65% of the workers were female right up to the modern day where several transport and engineering institutions have seen women presidents including ICE, iStructE and CIHT. These awards rightly recognise the important contribution both men and women have made in delivering highways related schemes  all across the UK. I look forward to meeting this years successful nominees and congratulating the winners on the day/night.
