Transport for London’s (TfL’s) Construction Logistics and Cyclist Safety (CLOCS) programme has been awarded the Premier Prince Michael International Road Safety Award.
The Premier Award recognises the most outstanding achievement in road safety from a series of road safety categories. Earlier this year CLOCS was selected as a Prince Michael International Road Safety Award winner and the Premier Award highlights it as this year’s leading road safety initiative or product.
The TfL-funded CLOCS programme was lauded as innovative, well researched and well managed.
Ben Plowden, director of surface strategy and planning at TfL, said: “Further improving the safety of our roads is one of our key priorities, and we have clear commitments and an ambitious target to reduce the number of people killed or seriously injured on London’s roads by 50% by 2020.
“Receiving this prestigious international award recognises the results of our efforts and is clearly a huge honour for our staff and our colleagues across the construction industry. This recognition is important. It will encourage more companies to get on-board the collaborative CLOCS programme to improve road safety at a faster rate.”
