The first Passport Gold and Silver awards have been presented at National Highways’ Engagement Council on the 6th of April. Representatives from across the highways supply chain gathered together for the first time in over two years for a feature-filled day. The event culminated with the presentation of the first Passport Gold and Silver awards, which reward company best practice in their implementation of the national Passport system.
Malcolm Dare, Executive Director of Commercial and Procurement at National Highways, and Teresa Moss, Health, Safety and Wellbeing Business Partner at National Highways, presented the certificates to representatives from the winning organisations and projects.
Teresa Moss said of the Passport Gold and Silver winners:
"I was delighted to hand out awards for Passport Gold and Silver. Passport is very important to National Highways, and these awards reflect our gratitude to organisations that have gone above and beyond to help establish Passport – to the benefit of the entire highways supply chain. Kier Highways, Carnell, CR Civil Engineering, MWay Comms, WJ North and Galliford Try are all deserving of the Silver award.
“The A47 Guyhirn Junction project has been exemplary in its Passport usage. All contractors involved should be very proud of their Gold award, especially Galliford Try, Principal Contractor for the project."
Passport Gold and Silver will be awarded monthly. If you want to learn more about Passport Gold and Silver or submit an application form, click here to submit an application.
