Construction News Image
The UK's biggest road construction project on the A14 has been recognised as 'spectacular' after securing several industry accolades.

The scheme won the Ultra Site of the Year Awards for Collaboration and Fairness, Inclusion and Respect at the 2019 Considerate Constructors Scheme Ultra Site awards ceremony.

The awards recognise projects which exemplify collaborative working at its best and realise the benefits of integration for their workforces, communities and the environment.


Members of the A14 Integrated Design Team (A14IDT) were in attendance to accept the awards.

Mark Berg, Project Director for A14 IDT Cambridge to Huntingdon improvement scheme said: "Being part of the CCS Ultra Site is important to the Integrated Delivery Team. Working with the Ultra Site, in particular working with our supply chain, allows us to push the boundaries, the capability and capacity of our supply chain."

The A14 Cambridge to Huntingdon Improvement Scheme is the first major infrastructure project to be recognised as an Ultra Site, and the only highways project with CCS Ultra Site status. It recognises the team's commitment to encourage its supply chain to meet the highest standards of the CCS scheme and strives to work innovatively.
