We pride ourselves on delivering exceptional schemes by a flexible, hassle-free approach.
We are proud and honoured to have received many prestigious awards over the years.
Our most recent awards include:
National Highways Awards 2022
Active Travel Scheme of the Year Winner
The winners of the Highways Awards 2022 were announced on Wednesday 20th October at a glittering gala dinner, within a packed Park Plaza Westminster Bridge London.
It was our first nomination at the Highways Awards becoming finalist for the ‘Active Travel Scheme of the Year Award’ for Bramhall Park to A6 Active Travel Scheme (Link), in collaboration with Ridge & Stockport Council.
This was a new category in this year’s Highways Awards, giving local authority active travel schemes the chance to be recognised. Sponsored by Clearview Intelligence, the award was judged on both the entry’s qualitative and quantitative impact, covering design, use, and safety criteria, as well as contribution to carbon reduction.
Judges looked for how active travel schemes used innovative or best in class design standards to improve the look and feel of a place or highway route to promote a safer, healthier environment for active travel as well as boost mobility. Statistics on how successful schemes had been were also considered. Particularly, any increases in cyclist and pedestrian activities; any decreases in road congestion; any improvements in road safety; and any economic benefits felt by the surrounding area.
Up against six other national finalists, we took home what was now our 2nd win for the prestigious scheme in under two weeks along with it being our first ever National Award. Head judge, Martin Polland, mentioned on the night, ‘it was incredibly competitive this year and to not only being recognised, but win this national ward is a big achievement for George Cox.’
