The CIHT Cymru Wales celebrate the very best the region offers across the key areas of highways and transportation. They are open to everyone: members and non-members; small and large organisations; public, private and third sector. The Awards recognise the outstanding contribution that good projects and people make to our daily lives.

The closing date for submissions is 17:00, Friday 24th September 2022. Winners of the Cymru Wales Awards will be announced at the Annual Awards Dinner which will take place on Friday 18th November 2022 at The Kinmel, Abergele, LL22 9AS.

 


 

Judging Criteria 

The judges will be looking to identify and to recognise studies and projects that will help deliver the seven goals of the Welsh Government’s Wellbeing of Future Generations Act and that are consistent with the five ways of working associated with that Act.

The judges will consider if and how well these studies/projects will contribute to the Welsh Government’s targets for decarbonisation and for modal shift (from the private car to sustainable transport and active travel). They will take into account the study’s/project’s concept, design, construction, operation and use. Safety, economics and the environment will also be taken into account.
