The challenges brought on by the global pandemic over the last 20 months or so has led to significant change across all sectors. To keep our frontline services, business and industry moving on our roads, as sector, we have all had to come together to effect change and adapt how we do everyday things.
Paddy Murphy, Managing Director, Aggregate Industries - Contracting said, “Community spirit in highways has never been greater. Working with our peers across National Highways delivery communities, private clients and Local Authorities, we have hopefully weathered the worst of the pandemic.
We have all been forced to adapt and change the way we work. We have undergone an incredible learning journey however by collaborating and sharing our experiences, we have been able to continue to operate successfully and safely during very difficult times.
The experience has brought teams together to deliver a shared safety-first goal. It has really stimulated a strong spirit of collaboration across our industry so I think it is really important that we continue to capitalise on this in order to move forward and drive growth safely. Joining Safer Highways is an opportunity for us to integrate with an even wider learning community so that we can continue to mature in our approach to safety, share innovation and learn from best practice in our industry.”
