RJP is delighted that the Northern Powerhouse Rail (NPR) team was been awarded the ‘Team award’ in the annual ICE North West Civil Engineering Awards 2021.

Each year ICE North West seeks out and shares examples of excellence in civil engineering practice across the region. The Team Award is new for this year, recognising how we’ve all navigated through the challenge of Covid-19.

The NPR team has involved 380 people, from 5 different organisations all working as one team (Department of Transport, Transport for the North, High Speed Two Limited, Network Rail, Mott MacDonald) and a third of the team are women. RJP has been providing support on the consents processes to both the Mott Macdonald and Network Rail teams.

The judges highlighted that the NPR programme is very complex and high profile with collaboration and inclusion at its heart – so is closely aligned with RJP’s values.
