Highway Partnership Award

Hanson and Dorset County Council win 2017 Highways Awards partnership category

HANSON and Dorset County Council have won the partnership category in the 2017 Highways Awards for their long-standing strategic relationship.

The Highway Partnership Award is presented to an organization or highway authority that has driven, or can demonstrate, a collaborative approach designed to increase the benefits for society or its local community, with clear illustrations of the positive outcomes.

The judges praised the Dorset/Hanson Strategic Partnership, commenting: ‘Good performance improvements, clear efficiency targets and excellent to see the partnership charter really working.’

The Dorset/Hanson Strategic Partnership, now in its third term, was the first private/public sector partnership of its kind in the UK. It delivers a high-quality, value service covering a wide range of highways projects from small maintenance and repair, to major reconstructions such as the £22 million A338.

It has delivered measurable benefits to members and stakeholders, including more than one million man-hours with zero reportable accidents and improved customer satisfaction.

Mr Martin said: ‘We are delighted that our partnership has been recognized by the industry in this way. It is a fantastic achievement and I would like to congratulate everyone involved in making it such a success.’
