McGee receives prestigious Road Danger Reduction Award

On Friday 8th May, McGee was presented with the prestigious Road Danger Reduction Award by the Lord Mayor of London at the City of London Considerate Contractor Scheme (CCS) Award Ceremony – this is the first time the award has ever been presented.  Held at the Draper’s Hall in London, John Kelly, McGee Group Transport Manager, and Marc Byrne, Head of Community Liaison, collected the award in front of the leaders of the construction industry.

The Considerate Contractor Scheme Awards are now in their 27th year and reward the efforts of all those involved in projects and initiatives which set the bar in terms of considerate construction.

Sheila Moules, Road Safety Officer at the City of London Corporation, said: “The City of London has an ongoing programme of initiatives with the Road Danger Reduction Plan which comprises ten core tasks covering intelligence, infrastructure and behaviour change.

“This year we are delighted that the first ever Road Danger Reduction Award within the CCS Award Scheme was won by McGee for their commitment to support the City with both educational and enforcement initiatives, continuous improvement and maintaining best practice to ensure vulnerable road users stay protected.

“It has been an absolute pleasure working with McGee.  Their work within the square mile has been second to none.”

John McGee, Director, added: “This is a tremendous achievement for McGee and I would like to congratulate the team who are busy delivering our programme of events and evolving road and construction site safety initiatives. This award is in recognition of all their hard work. Well done to everyone involved.”
