Capita's cycle project with North Tyneside Council won an Institution of Civil Engineers’ (ICE) North East Robert Stephenson Award

The £650,000 project, funded by the Local Growth Fund, included upgrades to off- road cycling and walking routes, new crossing facilities and improved street lighting.

It won the small project category at the Institution of Civil Engineers’ (ICE) North East Robert Stephenson Awards.

We delivered the scheme on behalf of North Tyneside Council, and was supported by Cobalt Park’s More team, who run a number of initiatives to encourage sustainable travel. It is the second year that the council and Capita have won the award. In 2017, a project to replace surface water culverts beneath two areas of Metro track was also a winner.
