The evening was a true celebration of the ingenuity and expertise of the people behind the design, construction and maintenance of pedestrian, highway and rail bridges in the UK. Proceedings got under way with an inspiring introduction by Avery Bang of Bridges to Prosperity, who gave a speech about the power of bridges to connect people and the important work of the charity globally.

The award presentations followed and were delivered by members of the judging panel, including Richard Fish, technical secretary of the Bridge Owners’ Forum, and Keith Brownlie, director of Brownlie Ernst and Marks.
