Amey's Sustainable Lime Street Transformation
Amey has clinched the prestigious 'Active Travel Scheme of the Year' accolade at the 2023 Highway Awards presented by Highways Magazine.
The company received honourable mentions in four other categories. This award specifically lauds Amey's exemplary approach to innovation and design, emphasising positive impacts on both the local community and the environment.
Collaborating closely with Liverpool City Council, Amey executed a comprehensive 'concept to completion' service, reshaping the highway infrastructure on Lime Street. The result is a cutting-edge public space and entrance to the city centre, in harmony with the iconic Lime Street train station and the historically significant St. George’s Hall.
This initiative forms a pivotal part of the broader Liverpool City Centre Connectivity programme, geared towards establishing secure, sustainable infrastructure for the future and addressing the challenges posed by climate change. Amey's commendable efforts also earned recognition in other categories:
Team of the Year Award

Major Project Award
Acknowledged for their contribution to the St Patrick's Link Road project with the Department for Infrastructure, Amey managed the design and execution of a 2.4km link at the £160M St Patrick's regeneration site.
