Highways Awards 2018 - winners revealed!

 

Thirteen winners, from organisations across the UK, received their awards from former Formula 1 McLaren pit crew mechanic and motivational speaker Marc Priestley - along with representatives from each of our category sponsors.

Attended by just shy of 500 highway industry professionals, the Awards once again reflected another busy year in the sector, with each winning entry showing a real proactive approach to change, innovation and collaboration.

The Official Charity Partner for the gala evening dinner was construction industry charity, the Lighthouse Club and an amazing £4,769 was raised during the evening, which was gratefully received by the charity’s chief executive, Bill Hill.

Big congratulations to all the winners and highly commended entrants in each of the 13 categories listed below, along with special thanks to all the Highways Awards’ judges, supporters and sponsors.
