Amey has been recognised at the Institute of Civil Engineering Yorkshire and Humber Awards for works carried out on two bridges in Sheffield.

Amey, who carry out Streets Ahead works on behalf of Sheffield City Council, were awarded a High Commendation in the Smeaton Award category for pavement strengthening work on Oughtibridge Bridge, whilst a strengthening project carried out on Storth Lane Bridge was awarded a Certificate of Excellence in the Sir John Fowler Award category, a new category for 2015.

The ICE Yorkshire and Humber Awards give public recognition to outstanding examples of the art of civil engineering.

Andrew Harley, Streets Ahead’s Structure Manager at Amey, said: “We’re honoured that the team and our partners, Sheffield City Council and Henry Boot, have been recognised for their work on both of these projects. A lot of hard work goes into projects of this scale and so it’s fantastic to receive acknowledgment from awards as prestigious as those held by the Institute of Civil Engineering.”

As part of the 25 year Streets Ahead project, Amey will maintain over 600 bridges and highway structures, some of which may require strengthening work.
