Doncaster Council's transportation team and its contractors have received a string of national engineering accolades for the Doncaster Southern Gateway Improvement Scheme A6182 White Rose Way.
The council-led project, designed in-house by the authority with some support from the Mouchel Group and built by Balfour Beatty Regional Civil Engineering, attracted £10million of investment from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) as part of Europe’s support for the region’s economic development and £9.7million from the Department for Transport (DfT).
CEEQUAL, the sustainability assessment, rating and awards scheme has rated the project as 'Excellent'. The award recognises the strategy, management, and environmental and social benefits of White Rose Way.
The Institute of Chatertered Engineers has also awarded the scheme a Certificate of Excellence in Design. White Rose Way was up against projects from all over the world, including Dubai and Hong Kong.
White Rose Way was also highly commended in the recent Chartered Institution of Highways & Transportation Awards.
Councillor Bill Mordue, Cabinet Member for Highways, said: ‘I am delighted with this national recognition for White Rose Way. The scheme has dramatically improved access into the town as well as unlocking a number of prime development sites. Jobs and growth are top priorities for Doncaster Council and we are driving the economy forward through transformational regeneration projects like White Rose Way.’
