The judges praised the entry for “very positive outcomes achieved from this highwaysproject that has shown excellent practice and new ways of working”.
Craig Simmonds, MD Macleod Simmonds “Winning the innovation category at this year’s Highways Awards tops off an incredible year for Macleod Simmonds! We are extremely proud of our achievements on this ground-breaking project, all of which could not have been happened without the support of the fantastic team from the City of London”.
Ben Manku, Construction Manager, City of London “Thrilled to receive recognition from Highways Awards 2018 for this incredibly complex project requiring leading edge technology and teamwork.”
Based in a complex high traffic London location, all information generated helped minimise unnecessary traffic delays, restrict noise levels and reduce overall delays all of which lessened the potential impact of the project on road users and the local community.
