Taking place at the Grosvenor House Hotel on Park Lane, London, the Highways Heroes are the blue ribband awards for our sector and are unique as being the only ceremony which represents individuals who have gone over and above.
Whether it's saving someone from danger or risk of injury, helping a member of the public to safety, or supporting a team member in the face of abuse, our winners are named a Highways Hero as part of this unique awards event.
Speaking about the introduction of the people's choice award founder, Kevin Robinson said,
"The night of the Highways Heroes Awards is always a very emotionally charged event and as such we wanted to make those in the audience a part of it.
"We wanted to make these individuals feel as much a part of the process of recognisising these amazing acts as our judges.
"Therefore, an award voted for by the audience on the night recognising excellence in our people was something of a no brainer."
The people's choice award will be voted for by the audience on the evening of the event, with the winner then invited onto the stage by hosts Meera Naran and Rich Marshall to receive their special one-off handcrafted trophy.
