Mersey Gateway’s achievements recognised by industry awards
26 March 2018
At the recent ICE North West Civil Engineering awards ceremony to recognise excellence and imaginative concepts in civil engineering practice across the North West region, the Mersey Gateway project, for which Currie & Brown was appointed as lenders’ technical advisor, won the ICE 200 Special Award. The special award is in recognition of ICE’s bicentenary.
The Mersey Gateway, which created a dramatic change to the local skyline, is 1,000m-long and consists of six lanes crossing between Runcorn and Widnes, Lancashire. The new bridge is part of a wider project which consists of 12 new bridges, nine kilometres of new roads and seven junctions.
Commenting on the project’s success, Eric Hindle, project director at Currie & Brown, said: “We are delighted with the recognition Mersey Gateway is receiving for its achievements. The new bridge will greatly benefit the local community, easing congestion and improving transport links in the region.”
The project has also been shortlisted at the RICS Awards 2018, which showcases the most inspirational initiatives and developments in land, real estate, construction and infrastructure. The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony on 27 April.
