APSE is delighted to announce the winners of the APSE Highways Innovation Awards 2023 as well as the winner of the APSE Highways Apprentice Award.
The APSE Innovation Awards celebrate outstanding councils that use innovative ideas and solutions to tackle the current challenges facing their frontline highways, street lighting and winter maintenance services.
Speaking about the Innovation Awards, APSE Chief Executive, Mo Baines, said, "Once again these awards have been extremely competitive, with organisations taking part from across the UK. APSE works continually to encourage public service excellence and we are delighted that all our finalists are so committed to delivering the best possible services for the benefit of their communities. Congratulations and thank you."
Speaking about the Apprentice Award, Mo Baines, said, "These awards underline just how important apprenticeships are to ensuring excellence in the delivery of frontline services. They remain a highly rewarding and mutually beneficial investment for local authorities. For each one of tonight's finalists, their resilience and enthusiasm in delivering the frontline services we all depend on so much is exemplary."
