The four hosts have been announced for this years Highways Heroes awards as:
Organised by Safer Highways and supported by both National Highways and Transport Scotland, the awards are the first time the supply chain and the client body have come together to recognise the value and importance of those unsung heroes we put to work everyday.
Taking place on the 2nd December at the QEII convention centre in Westminster the event will be a celebration of those individuals who have gone over and above their job role and really made a difference to their peers and members of the public.
With this in mind and given the ethos of the ceremony was about peer recognition Kevin Robinson, CEO of Safer Highways, explained the rationale behind the choices
“When I first conceptualised an evening which recognised those unsung heroes in our industry I was adamant that the hosts for the evening, and indeed those presenting the trophies had to be captains of our own ship, in short people who those taking pride of place on stage would feel honoured to be recognised and also, crucially that the hosts really understood the works these people carry out every day.
“We could have followed the well trodden path of bringing in a celebrity but to the man or woman receiving the accolade that almost feels a bit empty.
“This approach seemed to be much more relevant, and indeed something which we felt would mean more to those being recognised.”
After going on sale two weeks ago, Tables for the National Highways supported Highways Heroes awards have now sold out, in a record 5 minutes.
