The highways sector is one of the most dynamic business areas in the UK and with the incredible number of impressive projects we see on the roads every year there is nothing that makes you stand out from the crowd like being recognised at the Highways Awards.

Our distinguished and independent judging panel represents all corners of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and works to the highest levels of impartiality and professionalism. Well over a hundred companies enter the Awards every year and the event keeps growing and growing.

No business or scheme is too large or too small to make a major difference and we have a wide range of categories demonstrating the depth and breadth of the sector. So please get in touch and give us the opportunity to let the nation know exactly how you have changed the world, whether you are saving the planet and deserve our environment award, keeping people safe on site or on the road, innovating, delivering a major project, collaborating on better teamwork or helping bring through the next generation. Perhaps you have a new product that will change the market or are using technology to revolutionise how we do business. The important point is, don't stay silent about it.

And of course all submissions are considered automatically for the Judges Special Merit Award. At the end of the judging process, the panel review all the entries which have impressed them the most, considering the benefits to society as a whole, the improved safety to all road users or workers and the positive impact on the industry. The one entry that excels over all the others in these areas wins this prestigious award.

All entries must be received no later than 22 June 2018, but don’t delay! Start working on your nomination now to ensure you can stand up and be counted among your peers at this ceremony. Of course another reason to take part is…it’s great fun. The evening itself is a black tie celebration with more than 400 key industry professionals, giving you the chance to network with the great and good but, as is fitting to our industry, the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly and people are very approachable.

This year, the Awards will again take place at the Lancaster in London, on Wednesday 17 October, and we hope to see many of you in attendance to celebrate the winning of our industry’s highest accolades.

On our website you can find details of last year’s winners along with full information on the entry criteria for every category available this year.

We can’t wait to read your entries and to work hard to celebrate your hard work. Good luck to everyone from the whole team at the Highways Awards and Highways magazine.
