Highways Annual Considerate Contractor Awards Ceremony

Birmingham City Council celebrate partnership working in street works.

Set up in 1998, Birmingham’s Considerate Contractor Streetworks Scheme is designed to encourage all those working on the Birmingham highway to carry out work in a safe, considerate and consistent manner, with the public at the heart of their decision making.

Contractors and utilities that are responsible for carrying out street works volunteer to join the scheme. Those who sign up are expected to follow a code of practice. An important part of that code is to ensure the public are informed and consulted about any potential disruption and congestion caused due to works carried out on the highway.

The success of the scheme is very much dependent on partnership working .

On the 4th of September 2012, Councillor Keith Linnecor took over as chairperson of the Considerate Contractor Streetworks Scheme Management Committee. He is keen for the scheme to focus on the good work of the lay assessors and continue to be about a collaborative approach to improving road works activities in Birmingham.
