Highways UK 2019 Starts in

6/7 November 2019, NEC, Birmingham

Highways UK Laureates scheme

In acknowledgement of the extraordinary achievements exhibited by key individuals in the UK highways sector, Highways UK is proud to announce a new annual recognition programme.

Each year's two Highways UK Laureates will be elected from a shortlist of individuals recognised for their outstanding contribution to the highways sector. Laureates will be named and presented with their prestigious Highways UK Award at the annual Highways UK Laureate Awards Dinner, running on the first day of the annual Highways UK event (7 November in 2018).

The Highways UK Laureates Awards will be given to outstanding individuals who have made a significant contribution to the sector over a sustained period of time. They will come from all areas of the highways industry: public sector, private sector, universities, campaign groups and NGOs.

Typical characteristics of Highways UK Laureates will include a sustained demonstration of vision and leadership. They should additionally have a stand-out trait such as: a proven ability to foster collaboration and a proven expertise in relationship building; promoting innovation; project or programme delivery; design excellence; improving safety across the sector; or developing skills and diversity.

Laureates will be decided by the Highways UK Laureates Committee which welcomes nominations for consideration.

Associate Laureates - Tomorrow's Leaders

Additionallly, a further two Associate Laureates will also be announced each year. Associate Laureates will be selected from a shortlist of individuals with not more than about a decade's experience in the sector who have already demonstrated the attributes that set them apart as future industry leaders.


We welcome nominations for the Highways UK Laureates and Associate Laureates. Please email Fiona.McWilliam@Highways-UK.com for further information.

Nominations are now closed for the 2018 Laureates
