Earlier this year we submitted an entry to the Constructing Excellence Awards for Yorkshire and the Humber for the category of Project Of The Year (Civil Engineering) Under £10million. The topic of our entry was the A629 Salterhebble to Shaw Hill project
We were up against strong competition and on the night we were the only West Yorkshire council to be recognised with a Highly Commended certificate for our submission.
The project was the first part of the biggest and most complex highways project Calderdale has ever undertaken. It forms part of the £120.6m A629 improvement programme, funded by the West Yorkshire-plus Transport Fund, which focuses on transformational multi-modal improvements along the corridor, which carries over 40,000 vehicles per day.
Our project has delivered journey time benefits, a better environment, safer journeys for all users, improved walking, and cycling and bus infrastructure..
This is the third certificate we’ve received for the project in regional awards, with the Chartered Institute of Highways and Transport (CIHT YH) and the Civil Engineering Contractors Association (CECA YH) also commending our work. We’re really pleased that this innovative and ambitious project is getting recognised for delivering benefits to Calderdale, the Leeds City Region and beyond.
