Highways Project Wins ICE Centenary Award
16 March 2017
The Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) has recognised the A160 Port of Immingham Improvements project at its 2017 Yorkshire and Humber Awards.
This annual awards ceremony showcases excellent and innovative civil engineers and civil engineering projects in the Yorkshire and Humber region.
The Centenary Award was presented to the A160 improvement scheme recognising its design, safety and effect on the community by ICE President Professor Tim Broyd at the National Railway Museum in York.
Mark Duquemin, ICE Awards Secretary for Yorkshire and Humber, said: “With an excellent safety performance, this impressive project has delivered a great improvement to access at the Port of Immingham. We were impressed by all aspects of the project, which included building the sliding of the Rosper Rail Bridge across the country’s busiest freight railway line in a three-day period. It is a worthy winner in a very tight field of excellent projects.”
Once completed, the project will reduce traffic congestion and improve journey times making it a more reliable and safer route for the public.
Craig Snow, Costain Project Manager, was quick to share how it was a fantastic achievement for the team.
“I am very pleased for the team that the efforts have been recognised for delivering a genuine civil engineering achievement. This is a lovely trophy and one that I am proud to have our name engraved upon.”
