A COMPANY looking after more than 1,000km of Calderdale's roads is celebrating after winning a national award.
For the second year running, Amey has been recognised as part of the Considerate Constructors Scheme National Site Awards.
Last year, Amey secured a national silver award and this year is hoping to go one better by getting a gold.
Amey, which works with Calderdale Council to deliver highway services, street lighting and winter maintenance, has been notified of the national success, but wont find out whether its a gold, silver or bronze award until an official ceremony on March 29 in Manchester.
The Considerate Constructors Scheme National Site Awards are issued annually to companies showing excellent standards of consideration towards their workforce, neighbours and the environment.
Some 8,500 sites across the UK are eligible for the awards, but they are only presented to the top-performing 7.5% of sites inspected by the schemes monitors.
Amey, which has more than 60 staff covering Calderdale and looks after roads across an area including Brighouse, Rastrick, Hebden Bridge and Todmorden, was recognised for areas such as employee safety, updating residents about planned works and recycling kerbs and concrete.
Amey account manager Stuart Nichols said: We always take into account those who live and work alongside us and are delighted our team has been recognised for this.
