TM Operative tragically killed to receive special recognition at this year's Highways Heroes
TM operative who was fatally struck to be recognised at this year's Highways Heroes Awards.
Kev Jarvis was tragically killed when an Audi struck his Traffic Management vehicle with him inside it at 5am on Saturday morning between junctions 14 and 15 of the M6 near Stoke on Trent after a member of the public crashed during a high speed police chase.
With over 30 years experience in the Traffic Management industry, Mr Jarvis has been described as a very quiet unassuming guy, who didn't ever complain about anything.
His tragic death received an out pouring of sympathy at the time and now the Highways Heroes are to bestow upon Kevin the Special Recognition Award.
Chosen by the founder of the Highways Heroes, Kevin Robinson, the award will form the climax of the glittering night.
Presented by Road Safety campaigner, Meera Naran, the honour will be undertaken by Kevin's wife Julie Jarvis.
Speaking about the award Mr Robinson, founder of the awards said,
"Tragically our people are constantly placed at the risk of harm due to their interface with the road using public.
"With that in mind recognising one of our own was simply the right thing to do.
"I will be delighted to welcome Julie, her son Brett and daughter in law Kelly to the event.
