LLEP Local Growth Fund project wins major engineering award

The Leicester North West Phase Two project, which is funded by the LLEP’s Local Growth Fund allocation, has won a prestigeous award at the Institute of Civil Engineers East Midlands Merit Awards.

The project won in its category of best medium-sized project, which recognises engineering projects of between £2 million and £10 million.

The project involves making significant improvements to the traffic management at two busy intersections on a major route linking the centre of Leicester with future developments planned in the north west of the city.

The judges applauded the use of significant quantities of redundant tar bound surfacing material, which would have gone to landfill; the judging panel also commended the project’s efficient and well-planned communications campaign throughout the project, which ensured that everyone impacted by the works was kept up-to-date.
