Teams from across Amey have been celebrating after being recognised at the prestigious Highways Awards 2019.

The awards, held in London at the Royal Lancaster, saw the teams pick up three top accolades which included:

  • Road Safety Scheme of the Year Award - Reducing accidents and improving ambulance accessibility at A6091 Borders General Hospital
  • Major Project Award - Belfast Rapid Transit scheme
  • Highways Partnership Award - East Midlands Asset Delivery Community (Area 7)

James Haluch, Managing Director at Amey, said: "I'm delighted that our teams have been successful at this year’s Highways Awards. Our collaborative approach to delivering schemes has had a positive impact on the way we work, ensuring that we're championing the best people, initiatives and approaches to create better places to live, work and travel."

Nicola Hindle, Managing Director of Amey’s Consulting and Rail business said: “Amey Consulting is delighted to have picked up the Major Project Award in partnership with the Department for Infrastructure for our work on the Belfast Rapid Transit scheme.

“Investment in Northern Ireland’s transport system is essential to keeping people and goods moving, generating and sustaining economic growth. The win is a credit to both the level of collaboration and hard work achieved by our team in delivering this important project.”

This success comes off the back of award wins at the 2019 CIHT Awards this summer. The teams walked away with three award wins in the following categories;

Collaboration Award - SMART Motorways project for the Amey Arup joint venture Highways picked up two awards in the categories, Transport Team/Partnership of the Year, which recognised the teams handling of the "Beast from the East" severe weather period back in 2018. This was a joint award win with Transport Scotland and the other Scottish Operating Companies - BEAR and Transerv. At the Association of Consultancy and Engineering (ACE) Annual Awards, the Amey Consulting team and the Forth Bridges Unit were awarded the Data Led Asset Performance award for the data, technology and engineering expertise provided to Transport Scotland to ensure the crossing is maintained and operational.

The Frontline Employee of the Year award went to a TRISS Operative, Mark Burns whom over the past two years has received an unprecedented four a*star awards for his outstanding work.

At the Scottish Transport awards, Cabinet Secretary for Transport, Infrastructure and Connectivity Michael Matheson MSP welcomed 450 industry professionals to Glasgow to celebrate the people and organisations that make a real difference to transport across Scotland.

The teams were also recognised at the IHE Mercia Branch National Awards in the categories, Highway Partnership Award for the East Midlands Asset Delivery team and in the Small Project category for the Better Barton project.
