Success for Salford’s Traffic-Free Routes at the CIHT North West Awards

Following on from the success of Salford’s Traffic-Free Routes at the National Transport Awards 2017, Urban Vision and Salford City Council are pleased to announce that we were successful at the CIHT North West Awards on Friday 20th April!

Salford’s Traffic-Free Routes scheme was shortlisted as a joint entry with Salford City Council and Urban Vision acting as Delivery Partner in both ‘Best Practice’ and ‘Environmental’ categories in the recent CIHT North West Awards.

Urban Vision is our joint venture with Salford City Council and Galliford Try bringing innovation and skills from the public and private sector for development and regeneration across Salford.

The Traffic-Free Routes scheme was so well received it won a special award, with judges giving special praise to the improvements across the network and creating environments that make being active easy and accessible for everyone.

Last year, the jointly submitted project was recognised at the National Transport Awards where they won the Excellence in Cycling and Walking category in September 2017.

Well done all involved for this fantastic achievement!

We designed a solution to retrofit 9000 lanterns of the council’s existing street lighting stock with energy efficient LED lighting. We retained the existing street lighting columns that were proven structurally sound and replaced 1200 columns that were no longer fit for purpose.
