The finalists 

M4 Brynglas Tunnels Refurbishment, Wales
Brynglas Tunnels - after the project The Brynglas Tunnels first opened in 1967 and have been in operation continuously
ever since. The tunnels carry approximately 80,000 vehicles per day along the M4
motorway around Newport and are critical to the efficient mass movement of road
traffic along the M4 route in South Wales. Pre-contract, the overall condition of the
Brynglas Tunnels was poor with the tunnels frequently reported as having safety
related defects.
The Brynglas Tunnel Refurbishment Project was commissioned to ensure the
continued delivery of effective transport links and resilience of the road network which
is crucial to the Welsh and wider UK economy and an essential part of daily life for
many people.
The project contributed to achieving this aim by protecting the M4 route – and in
particular the Brynglas Tunnels, the River Usk Bridge, and the Malpas Viaduct – from
further deterioration and by reducing the vulnerability of the structures and the risk to
life safety during major incidents, particularly those involving fire.

Perth Transport Futures Project Phase 1, Scotland
Perth Transport Futures Project Phase 1 Perth’s growth has long been constrained by the existing trunk road and local road network. The city has also been declared an air quality management area, leaving Perth & Kinross Council with a legal responsibility to address congestion and air quality issues in the city centre. The solution to these issues is ‘Perth Transport Futures’ (PTF) which is the biggest transport infrastructure project ever undertaken by Perth & Kinross Council. PTF is the Council’s vision for Perth’s transport infrastructure to enable the sustainable economic growth of the city without compromising the trunk road network. The project consists of four phases which, when all complete, unlock development land to the north and west of the city, address congestion and air quality in the city centre and free up road space in the city centre to allow the Council to instigate significant modal shift to more sustainable transport methods such as cycling and walking.

Sham Mong Road/Tonkin Street West Footbridge, Hong Kong
West Kowloon Reclamation – Main Works (Remainder) – Footbridge at Junction of Sham Mong Road/Tonkin Street West in Sham Shui Po The project included a construction of a covered four-span footbridge system at the junction of Sham Mong Road and Tonkin Street West, Hong Kong with the length of each span ranging from about 46 to 67 metres (m) and the clear width ranging from about 4.0 to 4.7 m. Furthermore, six lifts, four escalators, two staircases, in addition to three direct connections linking of the proposed footbridge system with future adjacent developments have been built.
The project will help to enhance the connectivity between the adjacent private and public housing development; provide a barrier-free and grade-separated linkage for elderly, disabled, nearby residents and students; and improve the pedestrian safety and junction capacity.
To save energy consumption and to combat the negative effects of climate change, the project team works
proactively and transparently to adopt Light-Emitting Diode (LED) lighting system and Building-integrated
photovoltaics (BIPV) system on the footbridges alternatively to reduce carbon emission in public facilities.

Civil Engineering & Development Department, Hong Kong
Tseung Kwan O – Lam Tin Tunnel, Hong Kong The four NEC3 ECC contracts form the essential parts of the Tseung Kwan O – Lam Tin Tunnel (TKO-LTT) Project which is a dual two-lane highway of approximately 4.2km long connecting with Tseung Kwan O (TKO) Town Centre in the east and Cha Kwo Ling Road of Kwun Tong in the west. The primary scope of these four contracts is to construct a road network connecting with the local roads in TKO, comprising marine viaducts interchange, at-grade and depressed roads, footbridges and reclamation of about 3 hectares of land.
The Project forms part of the Route 6 of the Strategic Trunk Road Network of Hong Kong which will provide an alternative east-west express link between West Kowloon and TKO for relieving the present traffic congestion in the district and meeting the long-term traffic demand. The Project will significantly reduce the primary travelling time between TKO and the Eastern Harbour Crossing from 12 minutes to 3 minutes and therefore, greatly improve the road network in terms of efficiency, convenience and driving comfort. Hence, the traffic load to these roads during peak hours will be relieved, and thereby minimising the traffic and environmental impacts on residents in the vicinity.

Clyde Commercial Framework, Scotland
Clyde Commercial Framework Her Majesty’s Naval Base (HMNB) Clyde is a high security, highly regulated, highly congested and
fully operational naval base. Contractual relationships between Contractors, Defence Infrastructure
Organisation (DIO) (the Client) and Navy Base Command (the Users) have historically been
challenging, not only due to the security and regulatory requirements, but also due to adversarial
contract mechanisms, restrictive Scope requirements and regularly changing operational
requirements. HMNB Clyde is recognised as not being an easy place to work in.
The Clyde Commercial framework is a framework of contracts with a duration of ten years for works at Faslane and RNAD Coulport. These are high security, highly regulated sites with complex processes and procedures.
HS2/Arup + Civil Engineering Design, England
  High Speed 2 (HS2) is a planned high-speed railway in the United Kingdom which is aimed to be the new backbone of the national rail network, linking London, Birmingham, the East Midlands, Leeds and Manchester. HS2 will transform transport in the UK. It will directly benefit over 100 towns and cities, serve over half of the UK’s population, and give rail passengers thousands of extra seats every day. HS2 will take intercity trains off the existing lines, create more space for extra commuter trains and take lorries off the road as freight moves to rail, reducing congestion for drivers on our motorways. There are benefits from HS2 for every traveller.
