Highways Magazine – Highways Awards 2023 winners announced


Durham County Council employees scooped prizes at both ends of the evening – and their respective career paths – at the 20th Anniversary Highways Awards.

Comedian Kerry Godliman hosted the gala evening, with contributions from Highways editor Dominic Browne and Institute of Highway Engineers (IHE) president Martin Polland.

At the start of proceedings, Katie Withers was named Apprentice of the Year, awarded to an individual working in the highways industry for the first time, who has made a considerable contribution in the workplace, while Robert Major was given the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award after more than half a century in the sector.

With Mr Major unable to attend, Ms Withers, who had helped write his entry, gave his acceptance speech, while paying her own tribute to her mentor.
