Speaking about the announcement of the Octavius 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 and I am grateful to the team at Octavius for buying into this concept."
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 the hosts receiving their special one-off handcrafted trophy.
