CIHT Awards 2017

Author: Andreas Markides Posted: 15 June 2017

The Annual Awards ceremony was held at a very unique and beautiful Troxy in London. I had the pleasure of presenting the CIHT Streets and Places Award to the winners, North Midland Construction PLC and Sheffield City Council for their entry ‘Grey to Green Phase 1 – Sheffield Riverside Business District'.

Congratulations to the CIHT organising team for another brilliant event, and many thanks to all the organisations that submitted entries for the Awards, and the judges for their hard work in selecting the shortlists and winners. As a judge myself over the last few years, I appreciate how difficult a job it is, selecting from the many entries which are all of an outstanding standard.
And the winner is

Did you know…

Billions of pounds spent upgrading motorways and roads may be a waste of money because traffic levels are expected to fall, ministers have been told. 
A study by the University of Leeds has said that people were travelling “less often and less far” by car because of the rise of internet shopping, Netflix and flexible working.
The Commission on Travel Demand said that individuals used cars and other vehicles 14% less than they did fifteen years ago with more of those in their late teens and early 20s shunning car ownership altogether.
Hence, even though traffic has reached record levels as a result of population growth, the study has concluded that vehicles were likely to travel 70 billion miles less by 2040 than the government predicted.
