THREE engineering awards have been given to some of the city’s biggest developments including the Mary Rose Museum.
The museum took top honours for engineering excellence, awarded by the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), while the Northern Road bridge replacement scheme was recognised for its technical expertise and innovation and the new Tipner Interchange M275 junction and park-and-ride received the project management award.
As an iconic addition to the region the Mary Rose Museum received its prize for being the best all-round project and making a significant impact on the area.
Judges praised Portsmouth City Council’s Northern Road bridge project, carried out by contractor Osborne, for causing minimal disruption to residents and maintaining an operational bridge throughout the demolition process and building the new structure.
In yesterday’s edition of The News, it was reported the Northern Bridge project missed out on an award. This was not correct.
