Strengthening and widening of the Tamar Bridge in Plymouth picked up the award for best civil engineering project at the NCE backed British Construction Industry Awards ceremony held at the London Hilton this week. The complex £34.6M scheme was designed by Hyder Consulting and carried out on site by contractor Cleveland Bridge.

The 34 month project saw two new cantilever decks added to each side of the 40 year old suspension bridge's main girder while three lanes of rush hour traffic continued to flow.

Full details of this project and the other BCIA winners and highly commended projects are found in this week's special supplement.
