Project praised for its ‘waste-not, want-not’ ethos

A motorway completion project in Scotland has been rewarded for its excellent performance in waste management, material use and transport.

Glasgow City Council’s M74 Completion Project received its CEEQUAL Whole Project Award at the official opening ceremony of the project on 28 June. The project, constructed by the Interlink M74 Joint Venture and supported by a Jacobs and Atkins design team, achieved a score of 82 per cent in CEEQUAL – the assessment and awards scheme for improving sustainability in civil engineering and the public realm.

The score was based, among other things, on the project’s use of crushed demolition materials (ca. 350,000 tonnes), its management of daily vehicle movements, which helped reduce congestion and improve local air quality, and its voluntary introduction of a Site Waste Management Plan.
