Updated: Aug 1



Five more key sponsors announced making it 10 in the month of July.


National Highways, Keltbray and Mace Group are amongst the latest organisations to commit to sponsoring a table at this year's Highways Heroes Awards.


Following last year’s landslide success of the breakout event, the Highways Heroes Awards returns on 7th December this year at its new home, The Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane, London.


They join principal sponsors Galliford Try, Virtus TM, Balfour Beatty and many others added to the growing list of those committed to the event. Speaking about the decision to sponsor the Highways Heroes, Tilbury Douglas commented:


"Tilbury Douglas has been delighted to continue its active membership of Safer Highways and to sponsor the Highways Heroes Awards once again.


We believe it is imperative that we continue to highlight, support, and reward the people carrying out positive and selfless actions to help keep people in and around our works as safe and healthy as possible."


The Highways Heroes Awards come after a time of unprecedented change not only in our industry, but as part of our everyday lives. Safer Highways believes this is the ideal time to celebrate the hard work and success of our workers, who have coped admirably in the face of adversity, to recognise the heroic actions of them which, until now, has gone unnoticed.

Nominate somebody for a Highways Heroes award



Taking place in at the Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane, London, the awards will recognise those who have gone above and beyond their duty, to help someone or improve a situation, either in the communities they work in or to unconditionally support fellow workers in their team.


Whether its 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, you or a member of your team could be named a Highways Hero as part of this new and unique awards.


The Highways Heroes will be judged by their peers, led by Kevin Robinson, Chief Executive of Safer Highways and David Lowery, Chairman of the organisation.


Kevin Robinson, Chief Executive of Safer Highways, added: “I am absolutely delighted with the way that industry has responded to our Highways Heroes Awards.


This is something the highways sector has very much taken to heart, and this has been reflected in both the number and calibre of sponsors we are announcing in this second wave and those we have yet to announce.


At a time when our industry has faced enormous challenges yet continued to deliver in times of adversity, it is vital that we recognise our people we put to work are the most important thing.”


"Every one of our sponsors truly buy into that sentiment and for that we are truly grateful."
