An independent construction body has praised the Bexhill to Hastings link road for its environmental work, liaison with the local community and safety record.
The scheme was graded as ‘exceptional’ in three categories and ‘excellent’ in the other two which were assessed under the Considerate Constructors Scheme.
The report followed an inspection of the project, interviews with the local community and analysis of work with local schools, colleges and charities.
It found the link road site was ‘at the forefront of industry best practice, demonstrating the very highest level of achievement’.
The report praised the environmental protection work carried out and drew attention to the work with the local community, where the Link Road team had ‘made exceptional efforts and communicated with 1,000 stakeholders and the large population of the local conurbation’.
The Considerate Constructors Scheme is a non-profit, independent national organisation set up to improve the image of the industry by encouraging sites to go above and beyond their statutory requirements to deliver the highest standards.
