About this event

The Chartered Institution of Highways & Transportation (CIHT) is the leading voice of the highways and transport infrastructure profession.

It represents and qualifies professionals who plan, design, build, manage and operate transport and infrastructure. 


The CIHT’s North East and Cumbria region is holding its annual awards dinner on October 18. We have been shortlisted for two awards: 

  • Join Sustainability Project of the Year – Sustainable Links to School (in partnership with North Tyneside Council). This was a strategic review of walking and cycling measures surrounding schools in North Tyneside. It was aimed at supporting the Go Smarter initiative, which seeks to promote the use of sustainable travel. 
  • Apprentice of the Year – Erin Ruddy. Erin is a Transport Planning Apprentice who has been with us since August 2017. As well as receiving positive feedback for her work, Erin has taken on many additional responsibilities. For example she is a STEM ambassador, Health and Wellbeing Champion and an active fundraiser.  

The awards dinner will be hosted by BBC Newcastle Breakfast DJ, Britain's Got Talent star and Local Comedian, Alfie Joey. 

Reducing the risk of flooding in North Tyneside

Throughout I have been kept in touch about road closures and access to my property. The area has been kept clean and safe, the men worked long hours, even under floodlights to complete the project. The road has been thoroughly cleaned and I can get the car into my garage again.

Improving food safety standards in North Tyneside


We are committed to supporting local businesses. However, when there are unacceptable risks to public health, enforcement action will be taken to protect the interests of consumers and maintain food safety.
