Ms Percy said: 'I am thrilled and honoured to have been recognised in this way. I passionately believe that highways and transportation play a central and vital role in supporting a prosperous, equitable and healthy society and I will continue to champion our sector and those who work in it.'

Last week it was announced that people working in highways or transport can now apply to become Chartered Transport Planning Professionals through the CIHT, which has been granted an amendment to its Royal Charter to award the title Chartered Transport Planning Professional.

Also made a CBE (Commander of the Order of the British Empire) was Simon Blanchflower, chief executive officer at the East West Railway Company, the arm’s length body set up by the Government to accelerate the new rail link between Cambridge and Oxford.
