What the winners had to say…

To win the Award is to get recognition from seasoned professionals who have looked at our proposition and given it the stamp of approval and we couldn’t ask for anything better to be honest.

As a council, we were prepared to work with a producer of a product which was still in its infancy but could prove real good results. Now that the product is in place, we have a 100% reduction in accidents… so we are absolutely delighted.

I think the Highways Magazine Excellence Awards is absolutely fantastic for the highways industry… always creating a positive at the end of each financial year. This Award not only has a good impact on East Ayrshire Council locally but it’s always a good recognition for the national way that road stud technology has moved forward in the UK.
