Gold award for Walking Bus scheme
Medway’s Walking Bus scheme has earned the council’s road safety team a gold award at the 2012 Green Apple Environmental Awards.
The judges were impressed by the permanent Walking Bus stops that mark the pick-up points on the successful scheme. Local organisations can support the scheme by sponsoring a pick up point, thereby reducing congestion on Medway's roads while also improving road safety and air quality.
The road safety team was competing against more than 500 other nominations for the 2012 Green Apple Awards which recognise Britain’s greenest companies, councils and communities.
Bryan Shawyer, Medway’s road safety manager, said: “We are always looking for new effective ways to promote and increase road safety and sustainability throughout Medway, year round.
“A special mention for Su Ormes, principal road safety officer, who created the original idea with her colleagues and has championed the project to the success it is today.”
The project will also be considered to represent the UK in the European Business Awards for the Environment.
