Dominic Browne

In such challenging times, we have been overwhelmed by the response we have had for the 2020 Awards. However a number of you have been in touch requesting more submission time so...

In order to help you give your teams, schemes, projects and innovations the justice they deserve, we have now extended the FREE online entry deadline to Friday 19 June.

Please note, due to the complexity of our independent and rigorous judging process, we would be unable to accept ANY entries after this new, extended date.

Please take full advantage of this extra time by taking another look at the 15 categories on offer; some you may have missed.

You can also use our Compare & Contrast document that includes an easy reference synopsis; you may discover a new or additional category you hadn’t considered before, as well as offering you some assistance perfecting your entry.

On behalf of the Highways team, the very best of luck.
