DELIVERY | This week’s Highways Awards saw multiple wins for Hampshire Highways, an established collaboration between Milestone Infrastructure, Hampshire County Council and OCL Regeneration, working together to maintain Hampshire’s 5,500 miles of road.
Hampshire Highways’ Carbon Strategy, which aligns with the County Council’s ambition to be carbon neutral by 2050, won the Environmental Sustainability Award as well as the Special Merit Award.
The Micheldever Road Recycling Facility was also celebrated, receiving a highly commended award in the Highways Partnership category.
Simon Watson, Milestone Infrastructure’s Business Director for Hampshire Highways, said: “Milestone Infrastructure is proud that its work with Hampshire County Council and OCL Regeneration has been recognised at the Highways Awards.
“Winning the Special Merit Award was an added surprise and we are pleased to see our forward-thinking strategy being recognised at a national event.
“Receiving these two awards and a highly commended is a testimony to our hard work and partnership.”
Councillor Nick Adams-King, Hampshire County Council’s Executive Member for Highways Operations, said: “These awards are an amazing achievement and especially given the strong UK-wide competition.
“It is great to see that with the Environmental Sustainability award, the County Council’s trailblazing collaborative work with our partners has come under the national spotlight. It is particularly notable that the quality of work and good reputation of the Hampshire Highways partnership has been publicly recognised by their professional peers with the Highways Industry Special Merit Award.
“My congratulations to all involved and thanks for their fantastic hard work and dedication.”Back to all
