A massive congratulations to Urban Vision, our joint venture with Salford City Council and Galliford Try, and their multi-disciplinary team for the recent Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) North West award win.

Salford’s traffic-free routes, a project led by Salford City Council and delivered by Urban Vision’s landscape architects and highway engineers won the Civil Engineering Community Award for its innovative cycling and walking routes across Salford.

This is the third accolade for the project following the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation North West Special Award and the National Transport Award for Excellence in Cycling and Walking.

Andy Stockton, Urban Vision’s property design associate director, said:

“I am so pleased that our work on the traffic-free routes with Salford City Council has been recognised. As a result of providing improved access and new links to Salford’s green spaces we are encouraging all members of the public to move sustainably across the city and beyond, with the potential to realise the associated health benefits that it can bring.”

Salford City Mayor Paul Dennett, said:

“It’s a wonderful return on the investment the council, our partners and hundreds of volunteers have put into this fabulous scheme which is already resulting in health and wellbeing benefits for thousands of people in our city.”
