Well done to our Corporate Planning Team who won Innovation Project of the Year Award at the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation North East and Cumbria Awards 2023.  It was awarded for our Social Value of the Tyne and Wear Metro study, in partnership with Systra. 

We commissioned Systra, a leading engineering and consulting group, to undertake a study to identify and evaluate the social value of Tyne and Wear Metro including its impact on customers, the local community and the wider environment.
