Bridges Awards 2025



Introduced by Bridge design & engineering magazine and the organisers of the Bridges conference and exhibition in partnership with the Bridge Owners Forum, the Annual Bridges Awards aim to recognise and honour individual projects and/or organisations for outstanding achievement.

The Bridges Awards celebrate the sheer ingenuity, project management and cooperative skills of the people behind the design, construction and maintenance of pedestrian, highway and rail bridges in the UK.  

Outstanding achievement is sought under FIVE categories: bridge design, bridge construction, bridge refurbishment/reconstruction/repurposing, international bridge participation and bridge(s) maintenance/inspection/management.

All entries are reviewed by an independent judging panel who will take into consideration factors including individual/team contribution to a project, environmental impact, quality of design and construction, innovative factors, and benefits to the community.  

The winners will be announced and presented on 8 March 2023 during the Bridges 2023 conference and exhibition. Presentations will be made during an informal drinks reception, which will take place within the Coventry Building Society (CBS) Arena, Coventry, UK immediately after the main conference has finished. All delegates, speakers and exhibitors will be invited to attend.

We are offering you the opportunity to sponsor an awards category and present the award to the winner(s) on the day. This offers you a unique and special way to actively demonstrate your support for the UK and wider bridge industry during these tough times.
