VolkerFitzpatrick’s, M1 Junction 10A project is a finalist in the Civil Engineering Project of the Year (£10m to £50m) category of the 2016 British Construction Industry Awards.
VolkerFitzpatrick delivered a number of improvements to Junction 10A, on behalf of Luton Borough Council, including the removal of the roundabout and widening of the M1 spur road to three lanes. These works have reduced significant queues and congestion previously experienced by road users and improved journey times and safety.
Before the awards, site visits will take place to all shortlisted projects as well as face-to-face judging by members of the 33-strong jury, made up of the most influential clients, contractors, architects and engineers in the UK.
New Civil Engineer’s editor, Mark Hansford commented: “This year’s contenders really demonstrate the depth and breadth of excellence in the British construction industry. The judges can’t wait to get out across the country and see the impact these projects are having on their communities and we really look forward to recognising our winners at the awards dinner in October.”
The winners will be announced on 12 October 2016 at a glamorous ceremony at the Grosvenor House Hotel, London, where over 1,300 of the industry’s elite will join for a night of entertainment, celebration and networking.
